I have a whole bunch of Compaq Deskpro 5133 xl boxes.
They do not use the tlan chipset. (I am not at the lab
right now but,) I think they use one of the amd
chipsets that also act as a SCSI controller. I got
them to work with etherboot. The trick is that you
have to click the configure button on rom-o-matic.com
and then select CONFIG_PCI_DIRECT option because the
5133 have a messed up pci bus/bios implementation.
