Well, now it's running an unfinished Linux port, but I could install
NetBSD on it's local disk (which has a very crude ULTRIX on it - doesn't
boot to multiuser). Another thing is to get your mopd compiled on my
Linux x86 server - I hate to distribute things around and this box
acts as TFTP-server for the 5k/25.

  Another answer is to blat

Yupp, that's the easiest. I wonder if there is a boot PROM version
for the 240 which is able to boot per TFTP and when there is such
a beast, how to get it on my box?
