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.
