My SMC is recognized by srm, but it reads the MAC address wrong.  I put a
second entry into /etc/dhcpd.conf and it resolved that.

It appears that 'netboot' fails if the dhcp response is too large, I have
to comment out a number of things to get it to work. (router/dns, etc)
I need to get a trace before I can be sure what is happening though.

I'm assuming this is the battery, mine does the same thing.  If I'm
confused, I'd love to hear the fix.. :)
