How can I expand boot.img and supp.img to a hard drive?

I'm working on installing Red Hat 4.2 on a Compaq Contura Aero, and I'm
having two major problems.

1.  The NIC I have doesn't seem to have a driver.  It's a PCMCIA 3Com
Etherlink III, 3C562B/3C563B.  Any suggestions how to get a driver or make
an existing driver work?

2.  The Aero only has one PCMCIA slot (cripes, my Newton MP2000 has more!).
In order to boot from floppy, I've got to occupy that slot with the floppy
drive's card.  IF I were able to get the NIC to work, I'd need to swap out
the cards hot.  Not a problem for PCMCIA, but it could be one for Linux at
this point, particularly with the unusual behavior of the floppy in the

So, what I'd like to do is make it so I can start the setup program from the
hard drive and, with a working NIC, do a SMB install off a Windows box.  How
can I do this?



1. The latest boot.img and supp.img failed

Anyone knows how to make the latest boot.img and supp.img worked under
redhat updates?
I have just downloaded them and find that both were boot failed from
floppy whatever I made them by rawrite.exe in windows or dd in linux.

Thanks in advance,
