Hmm.  I'm seeing about 5 seconds from power on until I get an etherboot
message.  This is on an EPIA MEII 6000.  I don't have the vga bios in
there, would that account for the difference?

Then etherboot prints out:
Analyzing Media type,this will take several seconds........OK

It doesn't actually take very long, but it bothers me anyway :-)

It's about 18-20 seconds until the kernel starts all the way up and
complains about my lack of a valid NFS root.
