Ok, I looked harder and found this:


So it looks like it should be possible to boot a tftp loaded kernel
from RedBoot after telnetting to it.

I guess the downside is you don't get a console, you have to do a full
NFS setup to get a running system, then use that system to install
onto a local USB disk. This is kind of a bummer.

I'll try this. I'm also hoping to run an expect script from the tftp
server machine so some form of unattended reboot might be possible.

More later.
