Are you using RedHat? Some of their kernels don't support Tulip for ftp
installs. I don't know if the later ones do. You might check specific
distributions to see if they have tulip-friendly ftp installs.

Or, because you're at Cal Poly, are you at Pomona? Or SLO? If the former,
you might be able to buzz down to one of the install fests at OCLUG in
Fullerton (just down the 57). If you're transport-impaired, several people
come from that area.
