Hi there,

I have just gotten my fingers on a Thinkpad 765D.  The external floppy
drive is busted, and the thing will not boot from CD-ROM.  However,
according to its bios settings, it should be able to netboot.

Can someone point me in the right direction how to set up a bootp install
server, analogous to Solaris jumpstart, for FreeBSD?  I'd like to put
5.1-R on this thing, and I have a running 4.8-R server available.
