I finally got my Sun3 to work and am trying to get it to boot off my Linux
box so I can install NetBSD. I get the right IP address and gets the netboot
alright, but fails on bootparam. The following error message appears:

>> NetBSD netboot [$Revision:; 1.5 $]
Using IP addresss = xxxxxxxx
boot: client addr:
bootparamd: 'whoami' call failed
net_open: bootparam/whoami RPC failed
boot: netbsd: Input/output error

I ran callbootd from my Linux box and got all the right info:

# callbootd <server IP> <client IP>
Whoami returning:
client_name:	goofert
domain_name:	(none)

Any ideas?
