[JH: The manpage, perhaps under EXAMPLES, can cover this.

It seems to me that this would be better off reported under BUGS,
almost, even though it's not a bug in the TFTP implementation :).

	Some versions of PXE network-booting ROMs insist that the last
	character of the file should be \xff.  This can be worked around
	for the time being by linking the file appropriately, i.e.

	cd tftpboot
	ln -s netboot.pxe UCIPADDR`printf '\xff'`
