Network Boot Disk for Amiga

This disk is made for getting any classic Amiga easily on network with good file transferring capatibilities. It could be helpful in emergency situations or when building up a completely new system.

It's based on stripped down version of AmiTCP/IP 3.0b2 stack and couple of other freeware programs. Almost everything on the disk is packed and cutted down to minimum. You should install some full TCP/IP stack and latest full drivers for permanent use.

Use this disk only by booting from it as it is! You've been warned.

Features:

- Single DD disk
- Simple configuration
- Boots up with TCP/IP stack running
- SMBFS for mounting shared folders from other computers
- FTP client and server
- netmount client and server for mounting other Amiga's partitions
- patched HDToolBox for better compact flash compatibility
- UnLZX for unarchiving LZX archives
- Fixes for A1200 reset bug
- Drivers for WLAN, 3COM and NE2k compatible PCMCIA network cards
- Drivers for A2060, A2065, Ariadne, Ariadne2, Hydra and X-surf cards
- Drivers for Norway and Mediator *NEW*

Requirements:

- Kickstart 2.x or better (3.x for Samba and prism2)
- Mediator FastEthernet drivers need gfx-card drivers loaded, which needs an extra disk created by yourself

If you unpack lha-version to floppy disk, remember to use "install" command to make it bootable. For RAD: that isn't needed.
