[K12OSN] New World ROM iMac thin client



I've been playing with this for the past couple hours and I'm so close,
but not quite there yet.  I've downloaded the applenetboot tar file and
unpacked everything.  I've place yaboot and yaboot.conf into the /tftpboot
folder.  I've also place the vmlinux-ppc-2.4.22-ltsp-1 and
initrd-ppc-2.4.22-ltsp-1 files into the /tftpboot folder.

I've modified my dhcpd.conf file to include a host entry for the one iMac
that I'm testing.  Here's what that looks like

  host ws099 {
        option root-path        "192.168.0.254:/opt/ltsp/ppc";
        option routers          192.168.0.254;
        option dhcp-parameter-request-list 1,3,6,15,17,43,44,46,60;
        filename "yaboot";
        server-name "ltsp";
        option vendor-class-identifier "AAPLBSDPC";
        option vendor-encapsulated-options 01:01:02:08:04:01:00:00:01:82:
         05:                                    # length
         69:6d:61:63:34;                           # hostname
        hardware ethernet 00:30:65:54:d8:b2;
        fixed-address   192.168.0.99;
  }

So, what's not working?  On the iMac I boot into open firmware
(cmd-opt-o-f) and type boot enet:192.168.0.254.  Then, after a slight
delay, the screen goes from black text on white background (apple's open
firmware) to white text on black background.  I get "Lumensoftware
Terminal Server" text at the top (from the yaboot.conf file) and then
after a couple seconds it tries to boot linux.  I then get the following
(painstakingly re-typed):

  CLIENT:  00306554d8b2  192.168.0.99
  SERVER: 000a5e1ae8b3  192.168.0.254
  Transfer FILE: /tftpboot/vmlinux-ppc-2.4.22-ltsp-1
  TFTP ERROR response 1 File not found
  Can't read Elf e_ident/e_type/e_machine info
  boot: 

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
