Version 5.4.0. NIC: 3COM905-TX.
I've made floppy image and PXE menu boot file using
3Com Managed Boot Agent v4.30
(http://support.3com.com/infodeli/tools/nic/mba.htm).
When booting using Etherboot rom, the PXE menu file
and image are downloaded and a message is displayed,
saying smth like "Keep Base can be only used with
MBA 4.x of PXE ROM".

I've tryed to use original ROM code made by 3com
(http://dssoft.chat.ru/3C905.ZIP) and there everything
works with the same boot menu and image files.

    I have the same problem. I have use DOS executable format
    (.COM) for RTL8139 over 3COM MBAUTIL ImageEdit.exe .MNU
    and .IMG files. The .mnu file is downloaded with no problem
    and the menu is displayed but floppy images which have
    KeepBASE and KeepUNDI are having problems.
