Please do try to create a new thread and not hijack existing thread with
just pressing reply button and changing the subject line. This does not
change the messages id and your messages appeared between the posts on
Splitting loads thread. When you start a message using create new
message button the message id is distinct.
That said you are welcome.

AFAIK RTL-8029 is a ISA bus card so have you used the option-128 and option-129 lines in your dhcpd setup? You have to do this for ISA cards to work.
www.rom-o-matic.org www.ltsp.org has documented this.
I am also learning so I hope this solves your problem.
