Description Warren Togami 2008-03-18 22:30:05 EDT
Many older clients, or clients using non-PXE methods like LinuxBIOS or bootp
cannot use the standard kernel and initrd images.  The kernel and initrd must be
wrapped in a certain way to allow booting by these clients.  Debian/Ubuntu has
their own implementation using mkelfimage to support these clients that I need
to adapt in a Fedora way.

Some very older clients need an image wrapped with mknbi instead to be
supported, but it is currently not a priority for me to implement this.
