Dear Reader.

Because I have some news/suggestions for the etherboot
users manual, I wrote to the primary author: Ken Yap.

Here is the answer:

Hello Borg,

Thanks for you contribution. I am not involved in
Etherboot anymore but
I'm sure that if you posted your contribution to the
Sourceforge web
site, under the Bug Tracker forum, it will be picked up and
incorporated into future versions.

You could also email your comments to the Etherboot
user list.

Cheers, Ken

In conclusion:

It would be great, if following (or similar phrases)...:

"If you have troubles to add etherboot ROMs to new
Award / AMI / Phoenix BIOS files,
then just check the BNOBTC - [ BIOS Tool Collection ]
or ask the author to get help in adding an etherboot
ROM to your BIOS file.
