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.
