I have updated http://ipxe.org/1d704239 to provide an explicit example of 
specifying a non-zero LUN; do you think this is clear enough?

Interestingly, in your case, the target seems to have given up responding to 
the repeated READ CAPACITY requests, which means that the final reported error 
was http://ipxe.org/4c852035 (Connection timed out) rather than the real 
underlying error.  If you have time, it would be very helpful to know what 
caused this timeout error, so that we can ensure that anyone running into this 
problem in future will be directed to the correct error page.
