I got my hands on an old x86 style terminal (Etherminal does it write at boot time). This machine has an AMD PCnet 10/100 mbps network connection and is able to boot through it. But I don't know how to do, as it can't boot over PXE and I can't install a floppy drive.
How do I set up a server for netbooting? I can use Windows and Linux for it, but I want to boot a linux kernel.
There is the log the computer produces when trying to netboot.
