Scyld boot disk & recompiling the kernel

I just tested booting a slave node from my Scyld boot disk, and after
about 10 minutes of printing dots on the screen, it prints a message about
a failed RARP and reboots.  The node's MAC address appeared in the
Master's beosetup.

Also, how do you recompile the kernel in Scyld.  I have to edit the
schedular code so that instead of sending an idle signal to the CPU, it
sends a message to a custom-built PCI card (some electrical engineering
students' senior project).  I found where to add the code, but I need to
know how to compile it in without breaking bproc and stuff.
