    Well it's a bit far fetched to suspect the setup code, but I have another
    i440 that suspends-to-ram when booted over pxe without any problems. And,
    booting the i810 through dos-lilo also hangs STR, so that's why assumed it
    may be a setup code thing.

    How can I pull a tar-ball from that without using a git client?
