I enclose a patch which adds e1000 support to grub 0.93, using code from the etherboot sources.

Thanks, but I prefer updating all drivers to just adding one driver.

If nobody wants to do that, I would have to do that myself. Ummh.



I am currently negotiating some contract work with my former employer to (hopefully) do this very thing.

Specifically, they are interested in e1000 support. However, one of the requirements they have for the project is that it be done "right" so that it's included in future official grub releases. I have already informed them that the grub maintainers would prefer (and possibly require) a complete update of the pxegrub drivers, since they are known to be a little out of date with the current Etherboot drivers.

I should know in a few days whether or not they will have me do this.

it's quite a coincedence that this message was posted the day after I joined the mailing list :) I'm sure several people would be interested in seeing this done. If I can get them to fund my work, I should be able to devote a lot of time to this task.
