RE: 486er hangs on boot with iPXE floppy
Getting interesting.

First of all, I swapped the RTL8139 NIC with an Intel Pro1000 Desktop Adapter PCI, but usual problem... hangs up with the prebuilt floppy image. --> So, not the card's fault as it appears.
Next, I did this:

1) installed git on a x86_64 machine with Linux Mint (up2date)
2) got the sources in the way NiKiZe recommended, via "git clone git://"
3) created the src/config/local/general.h and wrote "#undef TIVOLI_VMM_WORKAROUND" in there, saved the file
4) cd'ed to src and ran " make bin/ipxe.dsk"

Unfortunately resultin in a compile error:
[............ lots and lots of DEPs and BUILD lines until.......]
  [BUILD] bin/undi.ids.o
  [BUILD] bin/rtl8185.ids.o
  [BUILD] bin/rtl8180.ids.o
  [BUILD] bin/ath5k.ids.o
  [BUILD] bin/ath9k.ids.o
  [AR] bin/blib.a
ar: Creating bin/blib.a
  [HOSTCC] util/zbin
util/zbin.c:7:18: fatal error: lzma.h: File or Directory not found
compilation terminated.
Makefile.housekeeping:1373: no rule for target „util/zbin“ failed
make: *** [util/zbin] Error 1

There is indeed no lzma.h in the whole git download, that I did. What I am doing wrong?

okay.. found out myself.. typical for noobs like me.. ; ) --> Installed lzma dev package... and g++ went through nicely.

Now testing the new image..

Nope.. no change.

486er still hangs at "Loading ROM image............................." but before "Initialising devices..."
amd athlon machine works fine with the shortly created disk image.

--> Are there some debug flags to compile in, to see what stage the booting fails?
