There's not a lot floating about on using MOP.  On the Ultrix server,

	addnode NODE -h ENET-ADDR -l /path/to/smallnet.ecoff

where NODE is a six-char-or-less host name and ENET-ADDR is of the form
aa-bb-cc-dd-ee-ff (_not_ colon separated as is usually seen).

Yep.  But in this case, booting via MOP should probably be easier.
