Hello, Sometimes, I run dos-prompt mode of windows on bootup. Do some dos operations. Then just run/execute for example, rtl8139.com msdos file to begin diskless client onto linux server. The rtl8139.com is for realtex 8139 network card and the file can be downloaded from rom-o-matic.net Hope that helps. rgds Bill On 17 Oct 2002 at 12:30, Janez Kostanj ek wrote: > > Hello folx, > > I am new to this list, read quite some mails but still don't know if it > is possible to download Linux image from linux server to MS-DOS diskless > client who acts like client with disk (it uses memory instead of disk) > over network (100 MBit LAN).
