Ahh! Your HMC ports will not get DHCP from the HMC, which you do not
have any way. No real biggie. The default IP address for the two FSP
HMC ports are HMC1 = and HMC2 = if you
decide to plug them into your network you will have to set a second IP
address on a PC in the same LAN segment or a Virtual IP on a router to
get to that IP. But you may never need to get to the FSP on your system
so it is really no biggie. Just keep the default IP address in case you
ever need them.

What should we be prepared to find, at this point? Exactly what sort of
"bad things" can happen if you plug in the power first?
