Actually the machine is not antique at all; I don't have access to it
right now though.

lspci -vv shows:

I can get you more info on Monday when I can test again on the PC, 
it's a usual via-rhine with some kind of RPL boot code on board, it works
very well with etherboot code, also with etherboot (PXE) -> pxelinux
-> (via menu) LTSP.

best regards,
