Thanks for test it.

Yes,it work in my labs with kernel 2.4.8 (not ac)! I use it for an linux disaster recovery solution.

It your still can use it , I put my use kernel in

/boot/vmlinu.gz kernel
/boot/initrd.img.gz initrd.img
/lib/module kernel modules.

Beacuse my netcard can not remote boot, I use grub .
In grub command:

root (nd)
kernel vmlinuz.gz root=/dev/nfs
initrd initrd.img.gz

I test it with eepro100 netcard.I thinks it can work with another net card.

Best Regard!
