AFAIK the intel iSCSI code on sf.net has a sample target implementation
but the last time I looked only contained target code for a ram disk and
a fake user mode disk (file on a normal file system).

A quick look through the UNH implementation

I found this mini howto:

Suggests that root fs with the CISCO iSCSI software initiator might
