Scyld BeoSetup Hang

Clustering newbie, but not Linux newbie.  Cluster is 6 Celeron500 with
supported cards, install Scyld no problem on Master node, check IP
connectivity with another Linux box(non-cluster) to ensure NIC's are up.
When I boot the first slave node (w/Scyld CD) all goes well up to the RARP
requests, which continue indefinatley.  MAC address of slave shows up in
BeoSetup, but status is marked as "down".  I assume the node must be in "up"
status before continuing with the next step, partitioning the slave from the
front end machine.

What am I missing?

Also, the new SusE distribution comes with beowulf clustering packages as an
install option.  Any feedback on this, or any other HP clustering packages
that might pose an alternative to Scyld?
