Just after doing this, does the machine show in the server arp table with
`arp -a`? If so forget this mail, if not issue (of course with the right
addresses) `arp -s 08:00:2B:2D:90:C0`

DECstation <-> bootp has following quirk: power it on and let
automatically boot and all goes well. Power it on and leave for a while (a
quarter of an hour) at the PROM-console and then booting, forget it unless
I use the arp -s command...
