Goal

If you follow the instructions below you should be able to "boot net" a domain from the SC's dvdrom drive.

You can configure this to boot over the private network, known as the man network, also known as the I1 network,  or you can use the public network for the domain.

The man network uses only 100 half duplex,  but having no other traffic on this network, works relatively well for booting.
