You tell me that an eeprom can be run into the ne2000 ISA? wow!

I did probe the ctflasher application and run nice!, I thin to use a
rtl8139 that a eeprom flasher.

Yes! I did!
Right now I explain:
Recently, I finish to develop a micro linux that runs into a i486 with
only 4MB physic RAM! and runs very very well!!!, basiclly is a
kernel+uclibc+busybox+svgalib+svncviewer and I can implement with
succefull, that via ethernet, the kernel boots with etherboot and
later with a pair of parameters via dhcp, the kernel mounts a root
file system (once a time, I do not use initram, only a root file
system style Root over NFS).
Well, in this moment to terminate my project and free to all that
wants I need solve the problem about the if is posible replace eeprom
by eproms, and if is possible, we can save a lot of money (olds
eproms, burner eprom...)
