Subject: Etherboot 5.1.1 supports linuxBIOS.

Just so everyone is aware my code for native support for linuxBIOS
has been added to etherboot 5.1.1.

Etherboot supports IP discover via DHCP, BOOTP, and RARP.
Etherboot supports downloading a kernel via TFTP and NFS.

Etherboot rom images are approxiamently 16KB in size, and
Etherboot supports most network cards.

So while this is not a perfect solution using etherboot should be a
good fix for anyone stuck with 256KB of ROM.
