Thanks Sun Managers.
As most of you pointed out, the problem was with SGI machines.
We had two Silicon Graphic machines on the net and they were
responding to the bootparamd request of our diskless client.
We shutoff the bootparamd daemon on both the SG machines by editing
the file /usr/etc/inetd.conf and commenting out the line which
kicked off the bootparamd and every thing worked fine. Thanks for
all those who replied (too big a list to include here).
