Please bear with me as I am a newbie to ecos and redboot.

Does redboot have support for a usb-ethernet adapter, like the Dlink

We have a board that have usb host ports, but it does not have any
ethernet connectivity. We are trying to get it boot over the network.
One of the possible options is to get redboot recognise a usb-ethernet
adapter, and do a tftp transfer over that.

I searched through the mailing list archive and there were some
discussions about this back in 2001, but no solutions were posted. There
haven't been any more discussion since then.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
