    You can only use netboot and etherboot on PCs, but you can use initrd-tftp
    on anything, regardless of whether it's firmware knows how to load a
    ramdisk and tell Linux where it is. You could even put the kernel onto a
    floppy disk or burn it into flash, but use initrd-tftp to load the latest
    system software over the network at boot time.
