Did you define at least one of the options
in your config file?

3c900-Combo? I've got a number of them, and they are
booting from ROM without problems. Make sure you have the lines
#USE_NETIF= 3c590 #handles 3c900 combo and 3c905 TX too
uncommented in i386/stand/netboot/Makefile.
If this doesn't help, find out the PCI device ID of your card,
add it to the list in i386/stand/lib/netif/3c590.c and change the
Makefile PCI_DID definition accordingly.
