Was going through my memory, and it ended up being a memory issue.  It 
was good enough to do the memory count & test with a certain pair of 
512MB PC133 ECC Registered, but not enough to boot.  Once those memory 
sticks were removed, it netbooted just fine. Same w/ the DVD-RW.

That board must have been more picky than the Netfinity(PIII) that it 
came from - since those modules were fine in it.
