The biggest bootimage I'm using here is (SuSE 8.2b3 Inst. Kernel+initrd):
-r--r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 6009856 Mar 6 10:07 bootimage-ziggy
created with mknbi-linux V1.2, so this isn't really the problem.
I'm also using ~4MB sized dos boot images (PQMagic, BIOS updates) without
problems. Don't try this with floppies...

Etherboot is simply pure fun and saved my life a couple of times ;-)

Thanks, Eric!

Bye,
Pete
