3 ways.

1. Etherboot 5.0.6 with polled ide patch:
download etherboot-5.0.6 and see http://www.missl.cs.umd.edu/~agnew/ for
the patch.

2. Etherboot development series:
download etherboot-5.1.7

see freebios/utils/ADLO/ from the linuxbios cvs. (this one is the most
work, but wont require you to modify your kernel when you're done)
