Re: motherboards for diskless nodes

Indeed. We also investigated the opensource ndis wrapper solutions for binaries to little avail. Maybe that's why Prism 2 and Atheros (MAD-wifi) support is getting progressively more open; manufacturers are starting to position themselves for something new... (MIMO? WiMax?)

Of course, the Prism 2 chip set is getting pretty old and hoary. Globespan Virata has really moved on to newer higher integration chipsets, and which are harder to get useful information about... Marketing & manufacturing oriented NDAs tend not to be compatible with opensource driver development.
