[syslinux] ethersel.c32 issues

ethersel.c32 does not seem to work with all PCs. I have prepared a 
floppy that uses ethersel.c32 to load a NIC-specific file (etherboot 
.zlilo image). See http://etherboot.anadex.de for details.

It works with every NIC and every PC I own, but not with VMWare. I know 
VMWare has some problems, so that did not bother me at all and I 
published it anyway but I have received several e-mails about problems 
with ethersel.c32 and real PCs.

in spite of the line
# DEV DID 1106:3065 viarhine.lil

and a NIC like this:
00:12.0 Class 0200: 1106:3065 (rev 74)

ethersel.c32 is not able to continue.

Any ideas?
