netbooting a dual-G4 powermac ?

I've a dual-CPU G4 powermac (openfirmware 3) that I'm trying to boot.
I couldn't get it to netboot; it will eventually load ofwboot.xcf from the
tftp server if I specify its name on the OFW boot line, but it'll never get
the kernel from the NFS server (which is the same as the tftp server).
tcpdump shows that dhcp is never sending the NFS root path to the client.
I have:
group {
        filename "ofwboot.xcf";
        option root-path "/home/NetBSD/macppc";
        host taz.soc {
                option host-name "taz";
                hardware ethernet 00:03:93:95:07:06;

Has anybody been able to netboot a G4 macppc from a NetBSD 3.x host ?
For now I'm booting from a CD-RW but it's less convenient to test kernels ...
