We've moved to GRUB 2 as a development platform.  Unfortunately, GRUB 2 doesn't have network support yet, although there's ongoing work to implement it.  If you want to help on that, please contact <grub-devel@gnu.org>.

In the meantime, this bug doesn't apply.  I'm closing it.

Alright, so I've got the UNDI stuff working with PXE and all that.  I'll clean up the patches somewhat and submit them here.  Is anybody still working/using this stuff?  This bug is pretty much the most recent reference I could find, and it's getting up on two years old.

etherboot-5.3.9 i out.
is there any patch update for grub planned ?
What about the ARP or unsolicited UDP traffic [bug #9245] stopping the GRUB TFTP download ?

I checked the support for the ether express 1000, and it works great.
I'm using am ibm x40 laptop.
Great work :)

Upload the unfinished UNDI driver patch for grub-0.95-diskless-patch-2.
Now DHCP OK on eepro100 and rtl8139, but hang in downloading kernel or initrd.
    1. The PATCH is still in develop! NEVER use it unless you know what are you doing :-)
    2. The PATCH only works on the official GNU GRUB with grub-0.95-diskless-patch-2.patch.
If anyone want help me to fix the kernel loading bug, we can discuss the patch on the mail list ---- You are welcome :-)

The patch only contains the sis900 driver fix, new DHCP tag and fixes some compiling warnings of the driver.
The unsolicited UDP/IP stack has not been fixed for I want to keep the core UDP stack just the same as etherboot. I will release a seperate patch to fix this as a beta version first :-)

Is the bug on the implement of the UDP/IP stack fixed in this realease 2 ?
cf: [bugs #9245] ARP or unsolicited UDP traffic stops the GRUB TFTP download...

1. Add DHCP Vendor Tag 'GRUBClient'
2. Fix the sis900 compiling error.

sis900.c contains a macro __pci_driver that is not defined.

More bug fix will be in next version patch(grub-0.95-diskless-patch-2.patch :-). This patch only contains new drivers.
I hope some bugs on tg3 may be fixed with the new driver. Can some one test it and report to the list? I do not have such a card :-(
