Someone was talking about updating the documentation for this.  Not
certain if it happend or where it is...  But, all you need is to run a
tfpt server for a short time.  Something along the the following lines in
the NeTTrom should work, going from memory:
	setenv eth0_config flash
	setenv eth0_ip <IP/n>
	setenv kernconfig tfpt
	setenv kerntftpserver <server IP>
There might be one other kern* option forget, should be fairly evident if
you need it.  Ignore the root* options they will not be used by the Debian
tftpboot image.
