Yes, 'chain' method merely means that you use Cobalt's firmware to
load CoLo rather than burning CoLo to the ROM (which overwrites the
original firmware). You'd create /nfsroot on an NFS server and put
the CoLo 1.12 binary there as vmlinuz.gz (with symlinks to that file
from vmlinux_RAQ.gz and vmlinux_raq-2800.gz; each model looks for a
different filename), and a symlink from /nfsroot/boot to /nfsroot.
Then, start the Cobalt and activate network booting by pressing the
left and right key together. See my HOWTO at
http://www.cyrius.com/debian/cobalt/sarge.html which describes
basically all of this.

contains a rom image and instructions (cf README.restore).
