Re: [K12OSN] using really old PCs as clients

Thanks for all the replies. But even now my question is not properly answered. It is simply,  if I use a new network card with boot ROM, 
whether I can boot in to a network even if the boot options does not have an entry for network card as boot device.

From the replies I assume the answer is negative and the only option is to use a boot floppy.

One person that is using realy old PC as clients (like i486 w/4MB ram)
is Alberto Castillo from Argentina. Search the listarchives for mail
from him,  Alberto Castillo <proyecto edulin gmail com>

That would be a good startin point.
