and depending what you are using it for, it doesn't do you much good if you
can't connect to the console of your tftp server since your terminal server
can't boot since the tftp server is down.  hmmm, catch-22.  however, the
chances of this being a probem if windows is your tftp server is overshadowed
by all the OTHER problems windows has.  that and i seriously doubt windows is
real useful over the serial port. :)
