 + 
 +Though we recommend and encourage use of **[[:​download|our git repository]]** to download gPXE and Etherboot releases, we also provide tarballs: 
 + 
 +  * gPXE release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​gpxe/​]] (preferred, supported, PXE compatible) 
 + 
 +  * Etherboot release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​etherboot/​]] (legacy, maintenance-mode support)

 +==== Google Tech Talk Video ====
  
-Some of the demos we were doing include: +Marty Connor, Michael Brown, and HPeter Anvin gave a Google Tech talk recently at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California.  ​We highlighted the new features of gPXEPXELINUXand how we have advanced the state of the art in network booting.
-  * Booting Linux over AOE  ([[http://​www.coraid.com/]]) using gPXE +
-  * Booting Windows Server 2003 over iSCSI using gPXE +
-  * Booting Linux using [[http://​syslinux.zytor.com/​pxe.php|PXELINUX]] and gPXE +
-  * gPXE's HTTP support for loading files+
  
-Traffic at the booth has been brisk, and we have met a lot of new people who are interested in our technology.+**Video ​of the talk is available [[http://​video.google.com/​videoplay?​docid=1911723796712805715|here]].**
  
-**Update:​** + --- //​[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2008/​09/​26//​
-Please note that the code for iSCSI booting Windows has been taken out of the codebase because of legal discussion. One necessary part for iSCSI boot in Windows is the iBFT record which Microsoft claims to be MS Intellectual Property and seems to sell licenses for.+
