Hmm, looks like the alpha might be sending a malformed TFTP request?
I'm not sure about this one as I've never run into it, but it
appears that the diskless machine is the last one to communicate
and sends a packet with a bad checksum.  Perhaps the server drops
it and the communication ends there?  I've not owned a TC-based
alpha, so I can't really comment on the likely firmware problems
that you may run into on this one.

Anyone else?  :-)
