I hacked the BSD tftpd last night (-> standalone and send from #69) but
you're right. It makes no difference at all. This morning, I played with
the transceiver again -- 2 switches, 4 possibilities. Tested all, but
no success. Some two month ago I booted that Indigo over net (okay, it
crashed immediately;) but the only difference is that we used a switched
port there... It's brain-dead, but I'll fetch a switch from my old school
and test it...
PS: Is there a way to boot the linux kernel off DAT tape or from local
HDD? If so, HowTo?
