Okay, I found the problem. Our faster HP workstations have MDL and
Interphase 100BaseT etherhose cards in them. For some reason, both
vendors claim they don't have to have an actual device file /dev/lan0
or /dev/fe0 in /dev. I remember this problem with another issue
with rbootd.

I tried it out on another workstation with just the 10BaseT and it
is working.

Any thoughts on the ethernet problem?
