  • Thread-topic: etherboot & multiboot

I've now given up trying to get grub working with my particular e1000
adapter, I've tried all the patches and all I can get is something that
works a little bit but never past the grub menu.

I'm sure I read something somewhere about a tool which would combine a
multiboot image + modules into a single bootable item which could be
loaded by lilo, and am hoping that the same thing might be able to make
me something which will work with xen + etherboot.

The other thing I'm sure I read somewhere (or maybe it's the same thing
and I'm just confused) is some way of combining grub + images together
so that grub doesn't need to know about the network, it's all just in
ram by the time grub is started.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Now that I want it, I can't
find anything about either of the above anywhere... maybe I dreamt it...
