Simple. I am interested. And I am not the only one. I think your solution is 
great because everything runs from the floppy.

Thanks a lot. It's definitly not wasted time. I'll just have to learn more 
about FreeBSD.

I thought it could be a good proposal for the company I'm working for. And I 
have to say that it works great if you don't need a client assess-like 
keyboard layout.

That is a great idea. Thanks.

When booting from your floppy, I cannot connect to the AS/400 even if the DHCP 
configuration is ok. I've got a message like: No route to host. Do you think 
there's a link with the fact that we use a VPN to access to the AS/400? I am 
a bit surprised because I have the same problem with the DHCP configuration 
under Mandrake (so I changed the network conf) but it is not a problem with 
Trinux... Weird.

Anyway, I'll make sure I am allowed to access to the AS/400 from that PC, then 
I'll try again and will keep you informed.

Thanks again.
