That's what it *doesn't* do for me. I still have the crossover cable
plugged in, it still doesn't get an IP address from ye olde K6/300.
So maybe something is "wrong" with DHCP in the default install after
all? I was wondering how to follow the install instructions for
games.tgz since I couldn't get an IP I couldn't see the whole /nfsroot
thing either. Or do I have to mount that manually once I have an IP?
I am obviously *not* the sysadmin type... :-)
