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.
