Description Richard D. Payne 2000-09-19 15:19:36 UTC
Would it be possible to also include a bootp-able install kernel on the
CD-ROM? It just
requires a differnet target to be built from the kernel source (make
bootimage, make
bootpfile). This would save time with NFS root installs.

Product change, and I don't have the authority to do anything about it.
I suspect the answer will be lots of laughing and a firm 'no'.


Comment 2 Richard D. Payne 2001-06-04 16:59:01 UTC
I don't understand what would be so difficult, it's just a different build
target from the kernel source.

Comment 3 Phil Copeland 2001-06-04 18:30:05 UTC
it's all about space
