Yes, it RARPs for this.

bootp and bootparamd are entirely different.  But your box isn't
getting far enough for the difference to matter; it's hanging when
netboot tries to RARP for the box's address.

I seem to recall that we had a discussino here a while ago about -3/50s
on which the ROM's RARP worked but netboot's RARP didn't.  I don't
recall what the resolution of it was.  Perhaps going to the
mailing-list archives would help.
