Here's my guess: The IP addresses of both your TFTP server and your CLLF board
have to be static, and you must configure both addresses into the CLLF using
"C)onfigure EEROM", "7) Modify parameters..." from the main menu.  While the
kernel will get its IP address dynamically via DHCP, the ROM monitor isn't
smart enough to do so before it launches its TFTP request.
