Hi there, thank you very much, epecially were people want to test
skolelinux without additional aquirations - or can't spend more, this
way is brilliant. Especially for DLink-530TX there are so many
revisions that by bad luck you might order the wrong Eprom.
Rom-O-Matic makes it quite easy, though, to create a boot disk - and I
believe there is a documetations somewhere on how to installing this
boot disk onto MBR by using lilo.
It shouldn't be a big thing to extend the howto on how to keep an
existing local installation (dos?) and making lilo the boot selector
(etherboot or local system).
