ah ha! we've come full circle :-)
good to hear.
So the things I actually care about are: booting over myrinet,
booting over inifinband, booting over quadrics, booting over a pair of
bonded nics. Having a good tg3 driver. Getting Lustre as my root
filesystem. Unless size issues kill it again I am going to use the
linux kernel as my bootloader to do this.
