It seems a nice idea that this route be documented, though the etherboot
route is obviously a lot simpler.  You must be on a very tight budget as
etherboot cards are about 22 euro from Martin Herweg.  If you have the
cards you can just buy ROM chips for them for 11 euro.


I know I'd rather use the rom chips but it's nice to have this documented
for those on a very tight budget.

That would be nice.
