"localboot 0" is the normal mode; "localboot 4" and "localboot 5" are
On a laptop that is set to LAN, HD - it booted the HD.
On a box set to Floppy, HD, booting EtherBoot floppy, I get
Booting from local disk
probing pci nic...
probing isa nic...
and then it re-enters EtherBoot, but not from the start - it skips the "loading
rom image...." and just displays
Boot from (N)etwork or (Q)uit.
and then boots from net.
I am guessing this is an EtherBoot problem?
