At http://www.freebsd.org/tutorials/diskless-x/index.html I have read a
how-to on Xtreminal setup, but failed to implement it. Would be grateful
for an advice.

1. I tried ISA NE2000-compatible card. The kernel boots, finds net card,
but writes `ed0 device timeout' repeatedly. When I run `bootpd -d4'
simultaneously on the server, I got the following at each such attempt:

bootpd: info(6):   recvd pkt from IP addr
bootpd: info(6):   bootptab mtime: Wed Jan  5 12:24:21 2000
bootpd: info(6):   request from Ethernet address 00:00:01:03:01:75
bootpd: info(6):   found (Vela)
bootpd: info(6):   bootfile=""
bootpd: info(6):   vendor magic field is
bootpd: info(6):   request message length=492
bootpd: info(6):   extended reply, length=492, options=256
bootpd: info(6):   sending reply (with RFC1048 options)
bootpd: info(6):   setarp - 00:00:01:03:01:75

I saw such timeout in a full FreeBSD when IRQ was set incorrectly. But how
seems card works, but somewhy does not understand server.

2. Seems here IRQ is set correctly (by jumper), but is it possible to
point it in loader's Makefile?

2. How to set I/O & IRQ for jumperless PCI NE2000-compatible cards?

Thank you,
