Once you get to the gpxe shell, you should be able to continue manually. I'm afraid I can't help with the exact commands. I don't know of any floppy images either.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I was assigned to Yanbu for 3 days but before I left Jeddah, I got the opportunity  to test
a laptop capable of pxe booting. Tried it to boot from tiny core terminal server but it didn't
boot also, using direct lan connection.

                       tiny core terminal server output
         tftpd:can't open file
         tftpd:can't open file
         tftpd:can't open file

So, to check if the said laptop is really working, I setup up a tftp server on windows xp using
tftpd32. copy vmlinuz and tinycore.gz on it's boot directory like this;

D:\pxeserver\
        tftproot\
              boot\
                    menu.c32
                     pxelinux.0
                     pxelinux.cfg\
                                default
                     tinycore.gz
                     vmlinuz

And it work! I was able to boot tiny core from windows xp using pxe boot laptop.

By the way, I use crossover (Cross crimped RJ45) cable on the said test.
And also, here is what i did on tiny core terminal server;
Boot device?/dev/sda2
        cp:can't stat /mnt/sda2/bzimage: no such file or directory
        So, I copied vmlinuz manually to /netboot/boot
First ip? 192.168.0.30
Last ip? 192.168.0.35
Netcard to use? eth0
Dns Server?
Subnet of shared ip's? 255.255.255.0
Gateway to share?
Any additonal options?
Please leave this terminal open

I just want to know if this is all that needs to be done in setting up a
tc terminal server.

We're aware that the script had the older kernel name. 4.1rc1 contains a fix.

Thanks,
    'option   bootfile //netboot/pxelinux.0"
works for me.

and this one also.
   start 10.0.2.2
   end 10.0.2.50
   lease_file /netboot/leases
   boot_file /netboot/pxelinux.0

   interface eth1
   option subnet 255.255.255.0
   option lease 864000
   option tftp 10.0.2.1

It gives me an idea, i'll have to go back to
etherboot diskette because i don't own this laptop.
i'm planning to use my pentium II as a terminal.
again thanks.
