Thanks for reading my site!
The T20 is based on the Wyse UTC + platform, this is a Wyse board and has a GUI'less BIOS. That is there is no GUI menu to configure options, the only keys I am aware of are the following:
- Q Key, causes a BootP boot request on standard ports 67,68,69
- P Key, causes a BootP boot for NetXfer on non standard ports 10067,10068, 10069
- V Key, resets video settings to 640x480
Other BIOS options require the BIOS to be updated and burned in.
Now for a network boot to linux why not just use Bootp to load up the Linux OS? You can load an image to force the Bootp and maybe set up a DHCP reservation or bootap file to deliver the correct image. If you don't want to conflict with DHCP use the P key option and set up the network on the non standard ports, it should work.
Now if this works be sure to post the results to me and I will put them up on the site, also this kind of question is best put in the forums as I seldom get to deal with the email hence the long delay.
