In the past, I always used this bootloader to boot kolibrios from network.
It works, but is not user friendly, only works with RTL8139 and requires the bootloader to be on a flopy disk.

So I decided to explore the wonders of PXE.
Right now I, used the method described here to boot kolibri.img through pxelinux.

In the future, I'd like to boot KolibriOS without floppy emulation, by means of properly using pxelinux, or a self-written PXE bootloader.
(I really like the idea of kernel.mnt and kolibri.img being seperate files on the server.)

Anyone has experiences to share, or other interrest? :)

I created a quick howto.

Great work! I think it can be used to diskless machines. Of course after we produce the Samba or something like that. ;-)

Briliant idea,
KOS+PXE might be an amazing thing for terminals and 'thin' data aquisition stations -- I'm with you.
