As far as I understood, you only need the 4MB RAM of you
want to boot from the network, via tftp. If the machine is
booted from the flash card, the onboard memory should suffice.
I also have a Maxserver 1600 here, with 4MB RAM, but it keeps
dumping core on me when booting via tftp.

After that, it starts again by reading the system file...
The dump file is quite large: 5220876 Oct 11 01:42 x018475.dmp
Anyway, as far as I understood, it should be possible
to get some form of system prompt on one of the console
ports even if there's no OS on the machine - but until now,
I didn't get it to send me anything...
