I have resolved this problem. I used netboot 0.8.1 and Dev86 0.12.0 on a linux box running slackware kernel 2.0.33. I was able to compile the binary files with the changes I desired and create netboot disks that functioned flawlessly. Any input on why the process does not work in the other scenarios would still be much appreciated..
