Hi All,

        Recently I updated the Gentoo/MIPS Handbook -- in amongst the complete
rewrite, was shiny new instructions for how to install Gentoo on a
Cobalt server.

        Now... in the instructions, it asks to download CoLo, extract the
colo-chain.elf file, and gzip it up as vmlinux_raq-2800.gz and to put
that in /nfsroot on the server.

        It appears the RaQ1 is a special case, and does not look there to
download its kernel.  Does anyone know exactly where these boxes look
for the kernel image when netbooting?  That way, I can ammend[1] the
handbook with the new details.

Regards,
--
