From the HOWTO (http://www.oss.sgi.com/mips/mips-howto.html):
7.6 My machine doesn't download the kernel when I try to netboot
Your machine is replying to the BOOTP packets (you may verify this using a
packet sniffer like tcpdump or ethereal), but doesn't download the kernel
from your BOOTP server. This happens if your boot server is running a kernel
of the 2.3 series or higher. The problem may be circumvented by doing a
"echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_no_pmtu_disc" as root on your boot server.
