hmmm, this would be a useful toy, I mean tool.  So I am thinking about
rebuilding the detector onto a CD, complete with all the etherboot
images ready to rock.


http://rom-o-matic.org/5.0.11 lists different /types/ of etherboot
downloads, viz ;

lzdsk
lzrom
lzlilo
lzpxe
.com

but none of these seem to be executable from a Linux environment.

question:  How do I boot/reboot the machine from the drbl detector
environment, to the chosen etherboot image ?

I could combine the Detector CD with a blank Floppy, and have the CD run
once-only, write the correct image to a floppy, and remove CD, leave the
floppy, and reboot.  I don't like the idea, since floppies are no
cheaper than CDs, and not as reliable.


ideas?
