The Sun Fire[TM] V40z will not PXE boot Windows 2000 with LSI MegaRaid SCSI 320-4x adapter installed.
With card installed, you will see a message similar to the following on the console shortly after pressing <F12> to select network boot: Unable to aquire DHCP address . With the card removed, you will not see this message and PXE boot will proceed as normal.
Adding the LSI MegaRaid SCSI 320-4x causes the PXE network boot to fail.
