There is that, but I seem to recall also being able to pass them as
arguments to boot net[0].  I think the syntax is something similar to
'boot net:my-ip,server-ip,kernel-filename,router-ip' or something like
that to explicitly transfer a kernel over TFTP and boot it.

I'd suspect 3.25 and later.  That seems to be when Sun figured out that
people run Suns on networks with systems other than other Suns.

[0] You can do 'boot net:dhcp' on OBP 3.25 and later.
