With mknbi you can create tagged images for Etherboot. Tagged images are data
files, which contain the necessary files for booting up (kernel+root for
Linux, kernel+minifs for DOS, ...) bundled together with a special format.
These tagged images are downloaded and understood by Etherboot and Netboot
during the boot process.
This package should be used on the server and not on the client. It doesn't
contain code which handles the network card, downloads the image, etc.
