I am new to this world. I have trouble to have my
network set up correctly. Is there anyone can help me
on this?

I have two Dell Petium III PC loaded with Linux-7.1
One LAN card is 3Com 3c509B Etherlink III on one PC
while the other is 3Com 3c905B Tx LAN card on the
second machine. I can "netboot" one Linux PC from the
other Linux PC. However, I have trouble to "netboot"
the rtems os on one PC from the other Linux os PC. Is
this the driver problem? If yes, then how this problem
can be solved? If not, where I might wrong?

More detail:
The following rpm files are loaded from web:

(1) rtems.4.5.0.tgz
(2) netboot-0.9.3.tar.gz
(3) hello_world_c-4.5.0.tgz

(4) rtems-base-binutils-
(5) rtems-base-gcc-gcc2.95.2newlib1.8.2-7.i386.rpm
(6) rtems-base-gcj-
(7) rtems-base-objc-
(8) rtems-base-gdb-4.18-4.i386.rpm

(9) i386-rtems-binutils-

Step1: I generated the rtems on i386 PC from rebuilt
the rtems-4.5.0.tgz source code.-- basic I follow the
procedure on "Getting Started with RTEMS for C/C++
Users 26 Sept. 2000 Edition 1 for 4.5.0" document.

Step2: I generated hello_worls_c.tgz executable code.
Step3: the stage1, stage2 and hollo_world_c.exe are be
able to put on the "floppy disk".-- I follow the
procedure from "RTEMS 4.5.0 PC386 BSP HOWTO
step4: It is sucessfully boot this rtems and can run
on one of the Dell Pentium III PC.
step5: However, I want to be able to develop the
driver through the network download. I have trouble on
"6.3 Using NetBoot to load RTEMS PC386 applications.".
I can complete the step of "setup of the server". But,
I have trouble to"setup of the client including
building the bootrom".
