I have prepared a similar floppy. It works with *all* PCI NICs supported
by Etherboot and is able to install Etherboot to a hard disk.
You can download it here:
It is based on FreeDos, syslinux (ethersel.c32) and etherboot CVS.
ethersel.c32 auto-detection does not work with VMWare but everthing else
should work. If you want to use VMWare either force a specific driver or
select "INSTALL Etherboot to the hard disk / modify this floppy" from
the boot menu and then "modify this floppy - hide menu, make the NIC of
this PC the default".
Please test it and report the results!
