The easiest way to boot it seems to be to set up a TFTP server on the local network (it looks like it has
to be local; I can't seem to get it to use a public TFTP server otherwise I'd just run one myself).
Then do something like the following, using the IP address of your own TFTP server, not mine. Note there are two boot commands:
ok boot eth:184.108.40.206 /efika.forth

NFS is probably the best install method to choose -- export the install tree by NFS from whatever machine you rsynced it to, and then point the installer at it. FTP and HTTP should probably work too, but will take a lot more memory and be a lot slower.
Known bugs so far, so you don't bother to report these:
1. Sound is unsupported. We'll look at adding that soon.
2. If the cat stands on the machine and knocks the VGA card out of its slot, the installer might crash.
