I have a HP/9000 C200 Workstation with no scsi cdrom drive, can I somehow boot this from the network to get Gentoo onto it?

And are there any documents to tell me how to do such a thing..?

I'm working on a netboot patch for catalyst.

http://dev.gentoo.org/~gmsoft/work/catalyst-netboot/old/images/hppa-20041002/
This image should work but it's experimental. i'm still debugging the netboot part of catalyst. I hope to release netboot images for 2005.0 (february).
