RE: Problem with Developer Board (My own version of the problem)

I am almost 100% positive that I was able to network boot to test my
application with the ktest script.  I haven't done so in about a month,
and in the meantime have switched development PCs.  This is why I
started from scratch, and just wanted to net boot the default images.
Alas, I am now unable to achieve this baseline.

To answer your question, though.  I was able to at one point, yes.
