Realtek RTL8139 and netboot or etherboot

I wnat to boot Linux on a diskless using a Realtek RTL8139 100Mbit/s

I have compiled netboot-0.9.0e but it seems the RTL8139 is not
supprted.  Should I select

	(0)     unknown card with user supplied driver

and if so, where can I get a driver for this card?

Or does etherboot support this NIC?  How large will the EPROM be with
netboot and with etherboot?  Can I use 32KByte, i.e. 27256 types?
