I am using etherboot-5.3.14 for "netstrapping" a PC104
equipped with an 82559er NIC. etherboot gives me a
message about "Valid link not established". After
commented out the network cable detect at the end of
the eepro100_probe() function, all goes well and I am
able to download a Linux kernel.
Maybe one of the following is true:
- the 82559er does not have "network cable inserted"
flag in the MII layer
- there is a bug in the detect code
NIC PCI id: 0x8086,0x1029
Thanks you all for this great software.
