Thanks you.
I reply so later because I had problem with my DHCP server.
My network administrator now gets it work, but there is still a problem: he 
says that I need to tell RTEMS the DHCP server IP-number, but rom-o-matic 
don't ask me for! When I try to boot with a generated boot image on floppy, 
rtems search for the DHCP server, but it doesn't find and print only dots.
What's about this?
