Boot a Diskless PC Using a TCP/IP Based Ethernet Network


- Booting a diskless client either from an EPROM or from a floppy
without additional utility tools

- The Bootrom code can use many standard DOS packet drivers and
therefore supports almost any PC network card

- Easy configuration of the bootrom under UNIX

- The bootrom can load a BOOTP vendor extension file to support more
space for tags according to RFC 1533

- Using the bootrom menu support, it is possible to optionally boot
different operating systems

- Even if there is a hard disk installed in the client computer,
bootrom can be used as a boot manager, because it also allows
booting from any partition

- Cross-gateway booting

- Bootrom runs on any 80x86 processor but is optimized for the 386+

- Able to boot different operating systems--Linux and MS-DOS (and
clones) are currently supported
