Floppyboot? I run a lot of teste with MES-N . All woks perfect without one main problem. It is not possible to put etherboot to the Award Bios with cbrom. The MES-N has a Intel 82558 NIC , so I use eepro100 etherboot with no problems.. Try this instead of RTL8139. Have you put the RTL8139 code to the Bios with cbrom.? Please report cbrom version and options.
