Gee, this sounds familiar. I never did get a resolution for this one.
The only solution was to manually populate the ARP table at boot time with
Paul Boven sez:
* Hi folks,
* Problem is, that after the SLC has requested its IP-address via RARP,
* and wants to have its bootfile, it cannot be delivered because the
* IPX does not know the HW-address it has (host is down).
* And for some reason, it won't
* do an ARP request out over the le0. After manually setting the
* hardware address of the SLC into the IPX's arp-table with arp -s,
* it will boot up without any trouble whatsoever.
This hasn't ever worked, at least not with an IPX...
