Hi All,

Many thanks for all of the replies.  Booting via tftp definately
works.  I have yet to get the installer to complete (it always hangs
halfway through), but I'm devoting some time to it when there's a
pause in work.  I've dumped the blade 150 (since it's having some
other problems) and am now concentrating on a 100.
