You must have the rbootd program to netboot. The rbootd program passes a
boot block to the machine, from which it can continue the booting process.
I have a 340 which boots rather nicely over ethernet.
We can probably help you compile rbootd under Linux, but you'd be better off
in NetBSD. (My NSHO. :) )

I imagine someone is likely to misinterpret my opinions as those of my
various employers. This is not the case.
