[K12OSN] RE: newbie, too many variables



Hi Folks,

I tried a rom-o-matic or two, and it didn't even recognize the disk, I tried
two different bios updates.  It's still not working.  I don't think I'll
find a NIC only updater, since the things soldered to the mobo.

Could the fact that my nic isn't on this list...
http://www.etherboot.org/db/nics.php?show=overview&chip_manufacturer=AMD
And the ones similar to it all show no one able to netboot off the things
be a bad sign for me?

Are there nics/firmwares/configs out there that just can't do the LTSP
thing?  Or is there always a way?  This little computer I got would be a
perfect thin client, if it could boot, of course.

Any advice?

thanks,

ck
