5.5 Booting from TFTP
Booting from the network requires that you have a network connection
supported by the boot floppies, including either a static network
address or a DHCP server, a RARP or a BOOTP server, and a TFTP server.
The installation method to support TFTP booting is described in
Preparing Files for TFTP Net Booting, Section 4.4. On machines with
OpenBoot, simply enter the boot monitor on the machine you are
installing to (see Invoking OpenBoot, Section 3.8.1), and use the
command boot net. Some older OpenBoot revisions require using the device
name, such as boot le().=20

In reality the command boot net works with a RARP server only. If you
are using a BOOTP or DHCP server you'll get the message:

"Timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packet"

The command to use with a BOOTP or DHCP server is:

boot net:dhcp

I'm closing these bugs because install-doc was the documentation for the
boot-floppies, which have reached end of life.

Current installation documentation is in the debian-installer-manual
package. If you think that your documentation issue is still not
adequately covered in the sarge installer manual, please reopen your bug
report and reassign it to debian-installer-manual.
