However, on a PC with an atl2 NIC you need a seperate package with the
atl2 modules installed. I did not use the official d-l CDs so I cannot
tell if it would boot on the PC but my d-l netboot did not.
Are such networking modules included in the d-l CDs?
Would including these packages suffice to netboot on a PC with a NIC
that requires such package or do I need a custom initramfs hook to
include the module?
