Ah, okay ... I'll check that out. I saw fconfig, I just didn't realize
that the gateway address was one of the things it could set (I guess
I was fixated on ip_address, since it _displays_ the gateway address).

I just realized something ... is the kernel _running_ from the flash
memory? (it looks like to me that it is) If it is, then I won't be
able to overwrite a running kernel (well, I'd be able to overwrite part
of it, but probably I wouldn't be able to get the whole thing :-) ).
So I guess maybe my only options are to either get a real first-stage
boot sequence running, or suck it up and just shuffle kernels around.
Thanks for your help!
