[Techtalk] etherboot

Hi folks,

I appear to be invisible on the etherboot discussion list, so I thought 
I'd see if anyone here can point me in the right direction. I am trying 
to boot some machines over the network.The client finds
the dhcp server, gets an ip, attempts to load the kernel, but quits
partway through with 'image checksum != computed checksum'.

All I have in the server log files is this:

Apr 29 01:59:32 miles in.tftpd[19968]: RRQ from filename 
Apr 29 01:59:41 miles in.tftpd[19971]: RRQ from filename 

What would cause this? It seems that checksum has to do with checking 
for errors when sending data over the network. I should add that I have 
gotten other kernels to boot over the network, so I suspect it has 
something to do with the kernel, but I have compiled this kernel in 
exactly the same way as I have previous kernels. Ideas anyone?
