[K12OSN] ISA nics not recognized



I am using the K12LTSP 2.1.1 distro.
When I use a workstation with a 3com905c network card, it works wonderfully - a PXE boot.
But when I try the same server with an older ISA nic (3com509) with an etherboot disk, I end with the error:
Running /linuxrc mounting /proc open of /proc/bus/pci/devices failed: No such file of directory
ERROR: could not autmatically detect the network card. PCI cards should be detected automatically. ISA cards cannot be detected, os the require the nic driver to be specified in a 'NIC=' parameter to be passed on the kernel command line, usually specified in the option-129, in the /etc/dhcpd.conf file....
