Got myself a SS1+ w/ 1.3 ROMs and the _exact_ same problem... I'm
booting off a Linux
server. Tftpd keeps sending the file, but the ss1+ won't take it for
some reason. _If_
I first boot SunOS (from disk), then netbooting comes up fine. Once in
a bluemoon, with
the right flick of the power switch, it'll netboot without doing SunOS
