I still can't get my alpha to boot. I have setup bootparamd and bootpd,
but the boot program halts. Here is my dump of the session. Beware that I
may have missed some really trivial part. By the time it prints its
ethernet address, there is no network activity from the alpha.
I would be very pleased if I could get some hint what I might have done
(boot ewa0.0.0.8.0 -file bsd)
