While you're booting the slave node, run 'beosetup' as root on the
front-end machine.  When the slave node starts sending out the RARP
requests, the MAC address will appear in the unkown column of beosetup.
Drag and drop that MAC address into the middle column.  Then hit
'apply'.  As soon as you do this, the front-end machine will recognize
the slave node and respond to the RARP requests.
