I wasn't able to get the tftpboot.img to work on my SS2 or SS20, but can't
find my notes to indicate exactly what errored.  If memory serves, it was
something to do with the TILO prompt, or problems at around that point.

If that works, it definitely sounds preferable.  On the other hand, I
don't see it worthwhile to prohibit the nfsroot method unless there's a
problem with nfsroot and sun4u specifically.

I'll keep an eye out for the new upload and will test it at that point.
In the meanwhile, if I have time, I'll retest tftpboot.img on the
architectures I have access to.
