Its been a while since I've worked with the Network Stations, but my
recollection is that there is a small window between the erasure of the
EPROM and the writing of the new kernel where disconnection of power
will render the NC useless.  Perhaps something has changed, but that
used to be the rule.  The quote below is from the AS/400 Network Station

"Be Careful: As mentioned before, power must not be interrupted during
the update process. Therefore before starting, ensure that the power
supply is securely plugged in. If the update process is interrupted,
there is a very small chance that the IBM Network Station may be left in
an unusable condition."
