Ack, has anyone found SRM 3.8-2?
I can't seem to netboot from SRM 3.8-3. Complains that the firmware
is too old :-)
Perhaps someone out there would be kind enough to send me a copy
of the NetBSD/Alpha 1.3 /usr/mdec/netboot doctored with setnetbootinfo
setnetbootinfo -a 08002be2bc70 -o /usr/mdec/netboot
I think I got that right.
