 I investigated this a little.
 The following check fails inside pxe.c:
 if (!(boot_params.bp_flags & X86_BP_FLAGS_NOBOOTCONF)) {
 now, boot_params is setup by sys/arch/i386/stand/bootxx/bootxx.S, by reading
 the disk. from the comment:
 525  * Fill in any user-specified options into the
 526  *      struct x86_boot_params
 527  * that's 8 bytes in from the start of the third sector.
 while booting from a network, we don't exactly want that, I guess. :)
 I haven't inspected it further; it time will allow, I will.
