jumpstarting with a profile server

maybe i read the manual wrong.

i __thought__ that if you we willing to install from CD, but
wanted to pick up the
       profile
       sysidcfg
and so on from the network, that what you did was:

put the CD in the drive
go to ok prompt
boot net - install nfs://server/path/to/tar/target.tar nowin

i'm getting
TIMEOUT waiting for ARP/RVARP

i forget exactly, but it's behaving like it's looking on
the network for booting.  i want it to boot from the CD
and install with the NFS mounted profile.
should it be

boot cdrom - install ..blah,blah,blah ?
