BTW: I was working on a fix for 8.1 to work, but to put it quite simply getting a 1 byte code from a memory address seems to have a lot of people stumped. I'm not sure why.. All that needs to be done is get the Address from say D0001 (I think) and move it to an word 00:00:00:00:00:(Whatever) Anyway, That's what I was working on before I lost it all in a crash, BTW: the rest of the tftp and bootp/rarp works fine if you set the address on the server to all zeros. but doesn't help if you have more then one Client. :( Later, Jason A.
