They also seem to have WAX support.  We tried to netboot a 725/50 with
the latest images from puffin.external yesterday, which went well until
loading the ramdisk triggered a bug in block_dev.c (that's what it
reported), bootlog to follow later today.

Then we tried the OpenBSD image which dropped into the debugger instantly
but correctly identified and activated the intel ethernet chip and the
audio part before going down...

Unfortunately it will be two weeks until we can repeat that exercise,
but i will give my 735/125 a try today to see what happens...
