Although I've never done any work on it, I have a copy of the code, and a
sample set of boot packets.  Also, I see there is a text file with the DEC
specification for the MOP protocol...

You can find all I have on the following URL          (an 80KB file)

Please note that I pay for bandwidth, so if someone would mind putting this
on a site that doesn't and linking it to the appropriate web sites, I'd
appreciate it.
