Success with 3c905b-TX-M and onboard flash prom.

I would like to report success using this card with etherboot.

This is such a simple solution that I'd recommend it even to idiots and
monkies... er, maybe not idiots.

The soldered-on eeprom, and the in-circuit programmability are really big
wins for someone who doesn't want to have to buy and install proms, or
doesn't have a prom burner...

If you're looking for a simple bootprom solution, and can get this card, 
it doesn't get much simpler. Just use romutil and go!

PS: Just a note, might not hurt to keep a backup copy of the original rom
