Yeah. I don't need to swith OS(es). I just need to be able to use
prims2_srec for a "one time only" task. I am not sure that prism2_srec
will work under emulation, given that it is a hostap driver related tool.
But now that you suggest it I will try.

I guess debian is my next friend with a diskless installation. I just
thought that there was a RD or MFS based distros out there. OpenBSD with
Flashboot rocks big this way.
Thanks for the help,
