(Hope this is R4600 - otherwise BogoMIPS won't be too impressive ...)

Assuming you're using a Linux box as TFTP Server here are old versions of
my config files.  Iff(OS != Linux) while(1){swear();rtfm(damn);swear()} ;-)

-- snipet from /etc/inetd.conf -----------------------------------------------

bootps dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.bootpd

(My bootpd (probably from Slackware 2.0 or 3.0) had to be replaced; it
wasn't working at all ...)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

/tftpboot/193.98.169.17/ is Mipsy's NFS root, 004095e11dc2 it's 48 bit
Ethernet hardware address.  Note that the kernel makes some assumptions
about where the NFS root is on the server (/tftpboot/<ip>); if you
change that you need to pass some kernel options.  My setup is such
that I don't need to pass any options at all.

Does that help?
