	Title		: A Standard for BootStrapping Clients using the iSCSI 
                          Protocol
	Author(s)	: P. Sarkar, D. Missimer, C. Sapuntzakis

The Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) is a popular family of
protocols for communicating with I/O devices, especially storage
devices.  iSCSI is a proposed transport protocol for SCSI that
operates on top of TCP[12].  This memo describes a standard mechanism
to enable clients to bootstrap themselves using the iSCSI protocol.
The goal of this standard is to enable clients to obtain the
information to open an iSCSI session with the iSCSI bootstrpping
server, assuming this information is not available.

In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ips-iscsi-boot-02.txt".
	
NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
