Oh, I feel your frustration! To get my ROM without a Network
connection, I ended up using PPP over the serial line through a huge
amount of hoops.

You can find the "Senior Cirrus Debug" on Unna. It is pretty much the
same ROM Image as the "Senior Cirrus No Debug" plus a few symbols that
get discarded anyways.

I assume that this is for Einstein? Please make sure to use the newest
version of Einstein to receive the ROM Image from your machine.
