[syslinux] UNDI packet driver?

Hi all,

I'm still trying to figure out a good way of booting a DOS disk image
via PXE and accessing files over a network share.

Having some success with the Microsoft network DOS client, it seems that
many programs have issues with its IPX support - so, now I'm trying to
use Novell's IPX driver instead.  Unfortunately it seems I need an ODI
driver to do this, and there are no UNDI/PXE -> ODI drivers available.

I have found PDEther however, which is a Packet -> ODI driver, which
means I could do something like this:

Boot PXE
Load UNDI/PXE -> Packet driver
Load Packet -> ODI driver
Load ODI -> IPX driver

Except that I can't find an UNDI/PXE -> Packet driver - does anyone know
if one of these exists?  (or if there's an UNDI -> ODI driver to skip
one step in the chain.)
