Dear Wolfgang,

1. I can't send patches for U-Boot yet.
2. All I have right now is a nasty hack that works for me (since my DHCP server
is configured well)
3. Before we put something like that into CVS we (not just you and me) should
discuss a way to deal with misconfigured dhcp servers because this changes the
behaviour of boards that actually have autoload=n. 
(There's only one board with #define CFG_AUTOLOAD "n" in the PPCBoot CVS ->

Is it enough to have a right CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK? So only the "interessting"
NetOurXXX variables are effected!?
