With etherboot (built with all default options) I get this :

    Etherboot 5.0.6 (GPL) Tagged ELF for [EEPRO]
    Boot from (N)etwork or from (L)ocal? N
    Probing...[EEPRO]No adapter found

I'm not so sure that's a bug, though.  This card might just not be
supported for diskless booting.  I found a spare 342MB hard disk to
work with, and I get lots of errors trying to insmod the "eepro"
module.  However, there is an 'eexpress' module in the linux 2.4
kernel which works.
