boot net fails in openprom


I have a simple problem with bootp in openprom.  I do not get a response
to arp request.  I am using the following config for 

always-reply-rfc1048 true;
deny unknown-clients;
option domain-name "skink.net";
option domain-name-servers;
option subnet-mask;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

subnet netmask {
        allow bootp;
        allow booting;
        option routers;
        group {
                host ss5 { # requires an entry in /etc/hosts
                        hardware ethernet 08:00:20:7b:64:93;
                        filename "vmlinux.ss5";
                        option root-path "/opt/nfsexport/fs";

i ss5 in my /etc/hosts file.

I have even added ss5 to my arp table via arp -s.  I have verified
that it is there with arp -a.
In tcpdump, I see the ss5 do a arp who-is request, but I do no
see a arp reply.

Please advise.

Happy Trails
