Ah, that could be the culprit. I'm using reiserfs, not ext2 With filo. Although it says it supports it. Perhaps it is The file system that caused my hair loss!!!! ;)
Yes, having the net connection does make things nice...if ya have it:)

Consider the redundancy aspect of it. First try remote.
again, if you have remote to try, that's fine, go for it.
If you don't have that ethernet connection, then counting on etherboot is kind of pointless :-)
There is also the error in filo where it can not handle an elf With both a kernel and initrd. It can only handle a kernel. To use filo I had to pack it up with initramfs, i.e. one big kernel. Etherboot remote boot doesn't have this problem.
in an ext2 on filo, i've got a kernel and initrd and it loads it up just fine, so I don't see what you mean.
