Licensing and Distribution

Remember that Etherboot is under the GNU Public License (GPL). This means that if you distribute binaries, e.g. in the form of ROMs, you are required to provide the source to the recipient on request. Please read the file COPYING for the full license but, in short, if you have not modified the source, you can easily satisfy this requirement by providing a hyperlink to the download page of the Etherboot web site, and stating the version number that you are supplying.

Note that distributing the Etherboot binary aggregated on a storage medium with other programs, e.g. as an extension BIOS in a BIOS chip, does not constitute linking with the other program and does not make that other program fall under the GPL. So if you distribute BIOSes, have no fear that distributing Etherboot this way will require distributing your BIOS under the GPL.
