Hi Bob,

As Peter stated , check when this client first boots. One of the first
5-6 lines. If you don't see pxe v2.0 or v2.01 this client will never
boot. A workaround if you cant get it bios updated,is to build a floppy
image(I would guess this old PC has a floppy in it),with the correct nic
image from the /tftpboot/boot/bootroms/ ,or just build the universal
boot floppy, also contained in this directory. This is on your k12ltsp
server right now. This will at least make this machine bootable for you
to test on.
If nothing else you'll learn how to build floppy images,& or the
Universal Boot floppy.:-)

Take  Care,
Barry Cisna
