I double checked all my code before I release this patch. The dhcp
implementation was just the same as the Etherboot-5.3.6 then. So, I
think it should work without the dhcp-hack
(http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=6690 ) now.
The dhcp problem on tg3 cards may be caused by its driver: 
Now all the drivers in my patch are from Etherboot-5.3.6, which should
have fixed it :-).

BTW, the drivers I have tested (with grub-diskless-patch-3):
        1. eepro100:    Intel PRO 100 SP on IBM Thinkpad T22
                                Intel 82551QM on Tyan i7501
        2. e1000: Intel 82545EM on Tyan i7501
        3. 3c90x: 3COM 3c905B-TXNM
        4. rtl8139: RTL8139D
Hackers who have sis900 based cards may check the new driver in my
patch. It has been greatly changed since Etherboot-5.3.5, may be the
driver can work in GRUB :).

Due to the huge delay of the mail system, it's quite difficult to 
discuss for now...

Thank you for your effort. I'd like to apply your patch, but I'd also 
like to ask the current status of your patch. I think there were some 
reports about a dhcp problem in your patch. Did you make any change for
