At least FreeBSD 2.1.0-RELEASE's rarpd still requires the directory
under /tftpboot. Thanks for the final hint. :)

My hp300 is now up and running diskless. Swapping over nfs also works
fine (had to modify FreeBSD's mountd in order to make it possible to
export regular files). But what next? The 030/882/16 is so slooow,
so all I think I'll do with the machine is running rwhod. :)
