yup... there is a file called bpf.c which #includes net/bpf.h, that's 
missing... Linux seems not to know this packet filter. Is there a version 
of rbootd that doesn't depend on it ? May be one for a system V ? The 
Linux-libc is much like system V...
Anyway, I've found another possibility, my Acorn Archimedes was able to 
read and write disks with 16 sectors / 256 bytes, with a different 
filesystem, but he knows at least the disk geometry, so i simply raw wrote 
SYS_INST on a HP-disk and it boots...
