Here are the specs.

AT power supply
P1 200 MMX processors
96mb of RAM in (6) 72pin SIMMS
3com 905-TX rev B 10/100 network cards with bootrom slot (Don't think it will PXE boot though, doesn't it have to be Rev C to
PXE boot?)
ATI 3d Rage II+ DVD video cards, video ram unknown.


Does anyone have experience with this hardware?

Yes, and it sound good.


To netboot those network cards, is the easiest way to purchase bootroms?

You can DIY or make it a project

or, companies like this sell them

or, you can use a floppy.  The Universal Boot Floppy should work.


Thanks in advance, Ben Nickell
