filename "vmlinux"; <--- This is the kernel 2.2 image that is loaded into every monoboard. It is actually in /tftpboot/ on hal9000.

next-server 131.225.194.10; <--- This is the IP address to the local dhcp server, hal9000. This doesn't change unless the server changes.

hardware ethernet 00:01:af:0a:55:31; <--- changed to reflect the board's HW address

fixed-address 131.225.194.22; <---for the closed subnet, just pick an un-used one.
