I am trying to build a diskless workstation using Linux. I can't use local
HD/FD so I need to know if there is a card that will take the place of a HD
and its boot sector that will allow me to put in all the required bootp
software in FLASH Rom/ or even the whole OS.
I have heard that some network cards have a socket for a ROM that is used
for this sort of thing, but I understood that that was for Novell only. If
that is not correct, can anyone tell me whether there is a source for a
Linux compatible chip or source for this? I do not know much about the NIC
hardware, so if I am saying something stupid I apologize.
Thanks in advance.
