You will need to edit "Makefile" in etherboot-4.4.4/src-32 to set the PCI signature of your card in two places: First (near line 296): # special case because we need to set the VENDOR and DEVICE IDs # vendor id and device id are correct for Rhine-II only via-rhine.rom: config-via-rhine.o $(PRLOADER) $(STDDEPS) $(LD) $(LDFLAGS) -o $*.tmp $(START) config-$*.o $(BLIB) $(DLIB) $(LIBS) $(OBJCOPY) $*.tmp $*.bin cat $(PRLOADER) $*.bin > $@ # ./makerom -p 0x1106,0x6100 -i$(IDENT) $@ ./makerom -p 0x1106,0x3043 -i$(IDENT) $@ Second (Near Line 440): # special case because we need to set the VENDOR and DEVICE IDs # vendor id and device id are correct for Rhine-II only via-rhine.lzrom: config-via-rhine.o $(PRZLOADER) $(STDDEPS) $(LD) $(LDFLAGS) -o $*.tmp $(START) config-$*.o $(BLIB) $(DLIB) $(LIBS) $(OBJCOPY) $*.tmp $*.bin ./lzhuf e $*.bin $*.huf cat $(PRZLOADER) $*.huf > $@ # ./makerom -p 0x1106,0x6100 -i$(IDENT) $@ ./makerom -p 0x1106,0x3043 -i$(IDENT) $@ Then $ rm via-rhine.rom $ rm via-rhine.lzrom $ make via-rhine.lzrom The Makefile comes with "0x1106,0x6100" as the PCI signature to burn into the .rom/.lzrom file. You need to change it to "0x1106,0x3043" or your ROM will not be mapped and executed. (The reason the floppy works is that the BIOS doesn't check the lzrom file's signature, but just loads and executes the code.) On my list of "things to do" is to figure out some easier mechanism to specify PCI signatures for clone cards. It would also be very useful to have a PCI Utility Program that listed PCI Signatures in the Etherboot distribution. There is one available at: http://www.freshmeat.net/appindex/1998/04/20/893094449.html I suspect it would not take much space, and the PCI signature is (as you have found out) a crucial piece of information at ROM burning time. Anyway, I hope this helps you out. Regards, Marty --- Name: Martin D. Connor US Mail: Entity Cyber, Inc.; P.O.
