I've got similar reports from others with different NDIS drivers, so
there seems to be a bug here. I'm on it, and will try to find a fix
with the next netboot version. However, since the NDIS interface works
with the drivers I use, please get in contact with me if you want to
try out some debugging code.

Thanks in advance, gero.
