I have tried to install the latest 1.2b8 on a soekris 4501 board but didn't work.
I used the physdiskwrite tool on windows to write the latest net45xx-1.2b8.img to a CF card and
then used a null serial modem cable to configure it using HyperTerminal. After booting, it dispalys
greek alphabet letter, arrows etc and stalls there.
I followed exactly the same procedure using the same hardware to install 1.2b7 image, which worked
Are you aware of any issue with the latest image and net 4501 boards?
