Thanks for the suggestion.  I gave it a shot, but it seemed to have no

Also a good idea, but unfortunately this box has only one optional PCI
slot and I'm using that for a 1394 card.

I should have mentioned what the internal ROM looks like.  It identifies
itself thusly:

    Intel LANDesk (R) Service Agent, version 0.99b
    Copyright (C) 1997  Intel Corporation.  All rights reserved.
    DHCP MAC ADDR: [snip]
    PXE-EA1: No PXE server found, using standard boot file.
    IP ADDR:
    PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout.
    PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout.
    PXE-M0F: Exiting LANDesk Service Agent.
I'm doing more research now on PXE, hoping to get that to work instead
(the server that came with Red Hat didn't work).

Thanks for your ideas,
