etherboot startup from lilo, and hdparm for spinning down disk.
I have put together a somewhat usable solution for installing and
setting up etherboot starting from a harddisk.
tomsrtbt, lilo binary, some shell scripting
i am able to install etherboot onto a harddisk making a ltsp-klient
start from the harddisk.
After adding hdparm to /opt/ltsp/i386/sbin
i am also able to turn the harddisk off.
I have made a small howto available on
Have not made the howto for lilo install in english.
I have found this very smart, saving money on ethernetcards, my school
is on a very tight budget.
With this solution we can use the cheap rtl8139 networkcards in
ltspclients with harddisk.
If someone finds this interesting or have some other opinion, please
PS. I will try to transelate the lilo howto if someone wants to.
