I am not familiar with the specific of bootprom, but the bootup process
in bonded mode is described in the iputils package. 

What should be done is something like:

/sbin/ifconfig bond0 addresss netmask broadcast
/sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth1
/sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth2

With the RH7.3 distribution it is automatically executed when starting 
the /etc/init.d/network script.
