I just ordered one of these 3Com 905C-TX-M cards. I can't make any promises, but I plan to see if I can make it work with etherboot. The other project I am looking at is to test the contrib/masq stuff to attempt to load etherboot via lilo (from hard disk) just like a kernel image. If anyone else is working on (or has advice on) either of these project, please let me know. Marty --- Name: Martin D. Connor US Mail: Entity Cyber, Inc.; P.O.
