Yes.  You can get the bootdisk with DOS flash utility and the firmware
here: http://home.eunet.cz/jt/wifi/floppy_flash.img

The documentation for the flash utility is here:

You need secondary firmware file called sf010506.hex.  It's included on

Yes, but they are for RAM download, so you have to load them every time
