Good Day,

I recently received an OLPC school server. When I booted it, I got the error: "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter"

Could anyone assist me with this issue?

Thanks in advance,
Brian Hall

Note that running hostap is not a trivial endeavour.

Unless something's changed recently since the last time I looked, the XO's wifi chip doesn't support hostapd.  The best I've been able to kludge together (back when I used the XO as a portable XS to tote to training sessions) was a USB-Ethernet adapter on eth1 connected to an old Linksys AP.  If wifi was available, the XO's WLAN worked as eth0.
