It's fairly simple. You'll need to set up rarp and tftp on some other machine
on the network. Just add something like '172.16.2.123 sunbox' to your hosts
file, and map the mac address of the box to that ip address in /etc/ethers.
Stick the firmware file into /tftpboot, and call it 'ip-in-hex'. Just run
rarpd and inetd (uncomment tftpd) and 'boot net' the Ultra. Done :-)
