4.28. etherboot

Updated etherboot packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The etherboot packages provide an open-source network bootloader. Etherboot replaces the proprietary Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) ROMs. It also provides additional features, such as DNS, HTTP and iSCSI.

Bug Fix

The etherboot-zroms-kvm package runs the update-alternatives utility during installation; however, the chkconfig package which provides the utility was previously not required by etherboot-zroms-kvm. As a consequence, the installation could fail with a "No such file or directory" error message. The chkconfig package has been added as a dependency to ensure successful installation of etherboot-zroms-kvm.
All etherboot users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
