Well, from your input and my experience, we know that:
* SRM 3.8-3 cannot be used for netbooting, period.
* SRM 3.7x cannot be used for netbooting without setnetbootinfo.
Whether it works with a setnetbootinfo'd file is unknown. If
someone could hack one for me, I can test this.
* BOOTP + TFTP seems to work fine ... it is when the netboot code
is executed that it goes south. This being the case, I don't
understand how MOP would help.
Any other experiences out there?
I have yet to turn up anything useful on recent archives. The
archives are kind of a pain to search. Does someone perhaps have a
web page that can search all of the archives, or do I have to just
download them all and use grep?
