Booting linux on a Compaq T1000.

Hi :).

Compaq T1000 are thin clients, equipped with Windows CE. I have an access to many of those, and I do linux xterminal networks setup. So I thought that putting linux on this would be nice. The most flexible way would be to put just a network bootloader on it, and boot from tftp (kernel) and nfs (filesystem).

AFAIK flash is formatted with 'true flash filesystem'. I have some firmware images. Is there an open source software which can modify those? This way I could put a .com etherboot file on it and just run it.

Or could I just put another boot block in the beginning of a flash image ?

AFAIK TFFS is just a kind of block remapper, not a real filesystem.

Funny thing is that linux on t1500 (another thin client from compaq) is booted using some wince methods :).

Do you have any suggestions?

bye, Filip
