I'm looking for info if it is possible to netboot a Jensen using a DE422
card. I've read quite a bit of paperwork, but most/all examples use a DE425
for netbooting. 

The firmware update docs describe a netboot using either MOP or BOOTP, but
with a DE425.

What I have in the box is:

>>> boot ez0a

  84 FAIL


tcpdump from another box does not see anything on the wire. And the boot
command fails very quickly.
