>Has anyone attempted net booting with intel 486 clients ?
I have done it with 'Pentium' and '386' clients from a
NetBSD 'Pentium' server. You can find a description and
example files in ~ftp/pub/NetBSD/ports/i386/diskless
on this machine. (wipux2.wifo.uni-mannheim.de)
If the description files are out of date I'd like a
unidiff or contextdiff of any changes that were necessary
to make it work.
The description explains how to boot NetBSD from
an MSDOS-menu in config.sys (MSDOS 6.0) but booting
from a floppy-disk-kernel should work too.
Remember to change the IP-addresses and names if you
use the example files.

I've never tried that.
