as I understand from your previous mails, you used the bootrom
code from rom-o-matic, which is using the etherboot code. However,
you used the netboot mknbi tools. For the automatic network configu-
ration to work properly with the "-i rom" command line switch to
mknbi-linux, you need to use a netboot bootrom.
