Can BL460c boot from SAN?

Has anyone gotten the BL460c to boot from SAN? I'm hearing it's a feature but wondering if it actually works. Would be cool.

I attended the HP BladeSystem C-class Academy
(HP course) last week and we successfully installed both windows and linux machines, booting from SAN, on BL460c blades using RDP.

Very interesting. Did you use iSCSI or FC? I'm interested if anyone has tried iSCSI boot-from-SAN. What SAN hardware did you use in the class?

From what i have read it is possable. We will be implementing this is Febuary 2007 connecting to an EVA 3000.

Sorry to Hi-Jack the thread.

Could any of you guys help me with the following - we are only going on the training in January, but i would like a head start as we have the equipment to play with already.
