Hi fillister,

I just built a boot disk for a 8139 Realtec chipset.

Take a look at http://rom-o-matic.net/ and see what chipsets they are supporting,

or,

you can take a boo at Techstyle's wiki for grub pxe booting http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/GRUB_PXE_network_boot

Cheers.

That is not mine.  I have been working on a gPXE version (from http://rom-o-matic.net/) and will add a Wiki page when I have all the info and a few mins to write it.
