Well, this PC is not connected to a network. I was more interested in 
something like reading the executable from a hard disk or an USB memory as 
Wendell suggested. I'm not a grub expert, do you think I can indicate the 
path of an executable located on a USB device ?

Otherwise what would be the main steps to access the PC hard disk from a 
"floppy-booted" rtems executable ? I have a FAT32 or NTFS format on it. I 
guess I must declare some kind of ATA driver ?
