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