Chapter 3. Systems that do not support RIPL (RPL)
Remote Initial Program Load (RIPL, or RPL) allows the system
to load an operating system (IPL, or Boot) through the network,
from a properly configured RPL server. On some systems, the
BIOS will only allow the hard disk, or a diskette drive to be
the 'boot' device.
Systems from these companies do not allow RIPL:
NOTE: Some systems allow the network to be selected as a boot
device right in the system setup utility. Check your system's
documentation under 'start up', or 'boot sequence' to see if
this feature is available. For systems which allow RPL,
but do not provide for it in the setup utility, there are
utilities in the RPL subdirectory of the Device Driver
Diskette that will alter the boot sequence. Refer to the
README.RPL file in the RPL subdirectory of the Auto LANStreamer
PCI Device Drivers diskette for more information regarding RPL.
The IBM ValuePoint P60/D will RPL correctly only if 16K
('4000'h) of ROM region between 'C8000'h and 'CFFFF'h is
available for use by the Auto LANStreamer PCI adapter.
This system is not able to use the ROM region between 'D0000'h
and 'DFFFF'h for PCI device ROMs.
