Just a quick note, tho it may not be a problem for new proms: Some proms
don't like the tftp server to use high ports (they use signed 16bit int
instead of unsigned). Also, you must disable path mtu discovery.

under linux, it's controlled by:
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range (i think that's the right one)
