If I remember correctly the tftp boot images provided above don't
have a version of the tulip driver built in that supports the dmfe

which does work, but without working networking it's rather difficult
to get it onto the machine. (And if it did boot the network cable
would need to be swapped before containing since Linux numbers the
NIC's differently to the markings on the machine and the way Solaris
I ended up removing the HDD and moving it to a PC, copying all of the
base installation files onto it, and then tftpbooted the image but
installed from HDD. (It wasn't quite that easy though since it took
me about 10 goes to get the correct stuff on the HDD and in the
correct place... plus I'd never used debian before - the installer is
pretty primitive, totally unforgiving and not very helpful when
things don't work...)
This is from the logs when I originally installed this machine (It's
now running 2.5):

In my case this was on an X1.
