[K12OSN] how to create etherboot CD

I've got a Micron desktop client that when I try to boot it with a Universal Boot Floppy 
starts to load the ROM image but then the screen goes grey with a few blinking 
characters in the center of the screen and it just stalls there.

So, I thought I'd try to get it to boot via a CD.  I followed the instructions at 
http://www.gnuenterprise.org/~jcater/ltsp/Etherboot-On-CDR-HOWTO.txt, but when I test it 
on a Dell OptiPlex that IS able to boot from the Universal Boot Floppy, it starts to 
load the ROM image, but then its screen goes grey, the black and nothing else happens.

Has anyone managed to translate the Universal Boot Floppy onto a CD?
