    At bootup I get a screen for about 5-10 seconds that says Press
    <shift-tab> key to display network boot option menu. If I do it, I get
    a Bootstrap selection menu that gives me 4 options. Why does this
    occur and how can I stop it.

    It's probably coming from a ROM on the network card. You need to
    reconfigure the card. Either there's a key sequence for it, or a
    separate NIC utility that turns off network boot. Since you've given no
    information about the card at all, I can't help further.

    Then go to www.viaarena.com and have a look for setup
    utility/documentation for a key combination.

    Do you have a BIOS option for boot order? If so, try changing network
    boot to a lower priority, after HD.

    Hi, I don't see any boot option in the bios.

    <Shift-Tab> Key to display network boot options - Disable

    I also have Rhine II Fast Ethernet Controller and I disabled the network boot option by going into BIOS setup.

    Under Integrated Peripherals, Choose the PCI option and then disable "Network Boot ROM" option. That should take care of the PC trying to boot from network first.

    Hope this helps.
