Boot ROM to boot over network?

Post by Mike Anders » Sun, 12 Mar 1995 06:17:21

Is there way to boot a diskless NetBSD client over the network?

Has anyone out there done this?

1. Booting from SCSI device/no boot ROM

can s.o. give me advice on how to boot NetBSD i386
when there is no IDE drive attached to the machine
and when the SCSI adaptor (Adaptex 152...)
does not have boot ROM? The system files have been
placed in partitions on /dev/sd1x. Booting from
floppy would be fine.
Or is there anything in the docs?
