None of this seems to work on my 3640.  I'm running 8.1.1 and using the file
V127-lisp.flod.66 (*-lisp.flod is indicated in site operations as relevant).
All other flods are version 66 or 67.

After scaning flods, initializing hardware tables, mounting fep1, and
declaring paging, the fep says it doesn't recognize the set network address
command.  Also, it doesn't recognize the set boot options command.
