Voyage Linux is now available in Live CD (just 31MB) which can be run
as PXE boot server:
Once booting the Live CD, you can follow the instruction in below to
start PXE server:
My recommendation is to boot the Live CD under VMWare or other
virtualization environment. Since the live cd uses casper & unionfs,
you can download your firmware to *everywhere* in the filesystem. Of
course, there are tmpfs (/tmp 8M) spaces for the same use as well.
If you have further questions, please discuss with me off-list.
