I don't know much about PXE either, save that it is i386 specific, 
and thus ought to be in the man8.i386/boot.8 man page. I do mention 
that some "BIOSes" support netbooting...

Is that how that works? I've always tried to keep the 
RARP/DHCP/BOOTP/bootparams server and the NFS server as the same 
system to avoid a whole class of problems.
