Be careful when installing/using iOpenboot tools!!
« on: September 06, 2011, 05:25:25 AM »
It may be a bug in the installer, or perhaps in the tools themselves,
but the windows tools totally nuked my path environment settings, replacing the entire path string with the iOpenboot path (instead of appending).
This disrupted many other programs including Mercurial, Java, and obviously Eclipse.

Be sure to back up your environmental path before using or installing iOpenboot tools!
