Yes, I have a command "defenv" which will reinitialize a board to "factory 
default" environment..

One of the environment variables "config" is a command which will download a 
board specific configuration script
"autoscript.<board>" from the server and run it using "autoscr".
The board specific configuration can contain the real ethernet MAC address 
and other stuff, but the default
environment .must set a prelmininary ethernet address to allow the server 
communication to be set up.
