Did I understand that right: You mean you have an off the shelf network card,
no bootprom sitting on it, then tell the BIOS to boot from floppy,
put a floppy in with some magical bytes on it that in turn direct the
computer to boot over the network?

How do I make such a floppy, i.e. floppy image?


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
