We've got four Sun v40z's fully populated with disks
(thus taking the slot normally taken by the floppy & DVD
drive). The BIOS supports booting from usb floppy, but not
other usb devices, including usb cds or pendrives.
So, how would we go about booting an arbitrary boot CD
(say Sun v40z diagnostics boot cd) with this setup?
Is there any way to initialize a USB CD boot from a
floppy? Could I bootstrap booting an NFS exported ISO?
From what I've read, I can't PXE boot a CD image.
I've asked this question on the Sun Managers list, I've
asked Sun, now I'm asking this list on the tenuous ground
that the server's actually running RHEL3 when I'm not
trying to boot arbitrary boot CDs on it.
Failing an arbitrary CD, what's the best way to boot a
RHEL rescue CD? Can I do that through PXE?
