I gave it try, and the embedded image seems to support the net5501,
the Platform: information under Status is correct.
But dummy me, I have an Intel PRO 1000 GT installed in the net5501,
and the embedded image does not appear to include the em drivers.
No problem I thought, I did the reverse trick, downloaded the generic-
pc image, renamed it embedded-1.3b14.img, but now the new embedded
firmware does not accept the disguised firmware, saying the firmware
is not for the embedded platform.
Do I have any other option than re-flashing the CF with the generic-pc
