I don't have time to look through the entire FAQ at the moment, but if
it's not in there, maybe something should be added about that linux bug
thing, the one where you have to use both "arp -s" and "rarp -s" for rarp
and bootparams to work correctly. Since I added a:

arp -s <HW> <IP>

before the:

rarp -s <HW> <IP>

in my rc.local, netbooting's worked every time. (It didn't before) I
don't remember who came up with the solution.
