Netbooting Sparc from i386 server
I just discovered I can netboot my Sparc IPX from the tftp 2.2.1 image.
I installed slink onto an NFS-root filesystem. Now I can't quite figure
out how to boot it.

LOOKS like (according to the man page) to be set up properly. However,
tftp boot hangs at this point, and if I comment out my machine's entry it
boots to dbootstrap, no matter anything I try on the Sparc console.
Do I need to compile a kernel and boot that instead of the tftpboot image?
Oh yes, the kernel in the image aparantly has some sun4c patches applied
to it. I'm wondering what there might be that the basic 2.2.13 doesn't
