I've been rummaging around for the diskless boot procedure, and saw
the one from March, where it specifically says "this won't work from
a DS5000/25."  (3 guesses to guess which machine I have).  The more
annoying thing is my current Ultrix load on the machine has stopped
working. :( 

Anyone in the Boston area mind me coming over with a SCSI drive and
snarfing a system off them?  :)

Or... anyone feel like doing it for me?  I'll mail the drive out
and the like.  Even drop $20 in the box for the job. :)
