IP5000 - what is the right BootRom/Application for non-MS Lynx usage?

OK, I'm confused...


I've got an IP5000 which I want to completely wipe out and reinstall the proper Boot Block,BootROM, and IP Application software for use with an Asterisk server.  I've read numerous documents here many of which have broken links to other documents and downloads as well as tell me versions to download which don't actually contain files for my IP5000.


Is there a kind soul out there who can hell me how to restore to "as-built" and then what the right file (or progression of files) I need to go through to bring this phone into the modern era?


Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
