I wrote the etherboot driver for the tlan about a year ago.  To the best
of my knowledge it works fine (on all three pci nics I have as well as
several reports from other people).

It is likely that many people were unable to use the tlan prior to this
and just installed a different pci nic.

If you have issues with the tlan, I am will to try to resolve it. 
Contact me directly or through the etherboot-users list.
