I guess, this is an hardware issue of my notebooks.
I have tested the MD on 2 notebooks, on the HP, the boot-process stops after the line Yenta, on my second notebook, a Gericom the boot-process stops right after some seconds, I think it was after the line "... hardware clock...".
This means, currently from my point, there is no networkboot for the MDs working.
I tried to run the Orbiter from XP-client, but as I wrote above, I can not play anything, no video nor audio.
I also guess, all this should work as you described, because the "only" two things are the MD-configuration and Orbiter-configuration.
One question regarding stored DVD´s: I have several dvds stored on my drive (my own dvds ;-). As you know properly, there is a folder named "Video_TS", where all .vobs are stored. I tried to play the dvd, but how do you do that, because the orbiter only show the "Video_TS" folder, and if you go into this directory, there are no vob files listed, but of sure, the vobs are in this folder Video_TS.
Anyway, my conclusion is, its an issue of hardware (Yenta? / hardware clock).
I´m waiting of my new CORE-hardware (dual-Xeon), then I can use my current CORE-HW for MD.
I´m looking forward to get pluto running.
