In message <Pine.LNX.4.21.0103062231010.23542-100000@ns>, you write: 

- -> I've got an o2 that I'm trying to make netboot, and it seems to work,
- -> however the o2 never acks the tftp packets.  The tcpdump is attached.  If
- -> anyone has suggestions/ideas I'd love to hear them.  I booted the o2 and
- -> ran "bootp():" from the arc prompt.

I had issues with my Indigo2 where the PROM rejected all TFTP packets 
from ports > 32767 (but that's with a stone-age PROM, I imagine O2's 
would have a somewhat more modern PROM).  

Also, try 'setenv DEBUG 1' (dunno if that does or doesn't work on the
O2, it does on the Indigo2) in the PROM and see if it gives any tell-
tale output.
