Greetings Luis,

I saw a thread about Startrom.com and startrom.o that had your name
I was wondering if you had a moment to comment on an issue that I have.

I have a Linux server that is our corporate PXE server.  It is set up in
a logical folder structure so that a host can be pointed to boot a
variety of different OS's  (DOS, Linux loaders, Windows PE).  Here is in
my dilemma,

I currently boot a 32 bit version of Windows PE.  BUT... I need to
support booting both a 32 and a 64 bit version.
I can't seem to get the system to boot more than one.  Have you had any
experience doing this?

To make matters worse... Microsoft has a new Startrom.com that I need to
use because it have a fix for AMD hosts and IBM Blades.  
I noticed you said something about renaming it startrom.0.  Will that

Lastly.. You mentioned a mailing in your post.  Looks like a newsletter
that may have covered some PXE details.  Might you forward me a copy.
It may just answer my questions or shed some light on my issue.

Thanks for your time.
