Yeah, but Apple is now downplaying that feature, because they got swamped
with calls from people trying to netboot iMac labs using IP (which a lot
of Mac places aren't that familiar with yet) with the servers several
routers away from the labs, and having problems with bandwidth issues, it
was a little much for schools whose closest thing to a tech is the science
teacher in his spare!? time.  Schools still haven't generally gotten the
idea that part of the price of computers is the people to make them work.

Will your 7600 netboot from an OSX netboot server without tweaking?
