     3* set up infrastructure
     4
     5The netboot image for debian is already around.  You need
     6
     7wget http://centerclick.org/net4801/pxelinux/pxelinux.0.gz
     8
     9as opposed to the pxelinux.bin that's already around.  You need to
     10make a link in pxelinux.cfg to an appropriate pxelinux configuration
     11file, namely the one for serial.  To the end of the 'insall' image you
     12want to add:
     13
     14DEBIAN_FRONTEND=text
     15
     16(we did this, so it's probably already there.)
     17
     18Minicom should be set for 9600 baud, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stop
     19bit, no flow control.  Turn hardware flow control off in minicom.  The
     20UNIX device for talking to the console is almost certainly /dev/ttyS0.
     21
     22* configure the Soekris net4801 BIOS
     23
     24Look at the banner from when the net4801 boots.  Get the BIOS version
     25and check it against the Soekris web site.
     26
     27Set the date and time.
     28
     29set ConSpeed=9600
