Nope, no network 'boot' is available AFAIK.  You need to have another machine 
that you can write scsi disks with, dd the image onto a disk, and then move 
that disk to the multia and boot from it, disklabel the multia's disk, etc.

Chris posted these settings a while back, so you can look through the archive 
for them, or send me email directly and I'll forward you a copy.
