Whre can I find that version of Grub? I'm just playing around a bit
with a DiskOnChip module right now, and I hacked the stage1 loader
from the mtd/grub directory so that it can load etherboot and then
added a some very primitive DOC support to etherboot (it was available
and has a framework for serial consoles which works).
So now I load etherboot from the DOC and then scan the DOC for a tag
which identifies an etherboot nbi image and loads that.
If anyone is interested, I can probably clean up the sources a bit and
put it up on a website somewhere.
