I am trying to boot rtems images using dhcpd/tftp/etherboot
and would like to know which of the etherboot options are needed.
Booting for example: hello.bt. Appended are some of the options
for the latest etherboot (5.1.7).
Add tagged image kernel boot support (recommended)
Add a.out kernel boot support (generic)
Add generic ELF kernel boot support (recommended)
Add generic ELF64 kernel boot support (useful for > 4GB disks).
Add the ability to boot WINCE.... now only sis630 OK!
Add the ability to boot PXE images... only FreeBSD supported
Support for PXE emulation. Works only with FreeBSD to load the
kernel via pxeboot, use only with DOWNLOAD_PROTO_NFS
Add the ability to boot 512 byte x86 boot sectors
Add Multiboot image support (currently only for ELF images)
Add FreeBSD image loading support (requires at least -DAOUT_IMAGE
Pass in FreeBSD kernel environment
Add Lynx a.out KDI support
