  1. hello,



    The problem is Abit mainboard doesnt run etherboot code for a diskless
    machine.
    any suggestions?

    (1) Abit SA-6 i815EP.............failed
    (2) Abit BE-6 BX-133............failed
    (3) DFI BX-133......................ok


    cbrom v2.15
    rtl8139.rom (www.rom-o-matic.org)

    procedure:
    1. boot from clear dos floppy.
    2. download bios from the mainboard's chip
    3. combine bios.bin with rtl8139.rom using cbrom215 utility
    4. flash back to the chip.

    cbrom /D indicates the driver is installed.
    programming is successful,
    but after reboot nothing special happens..
