Here's one patch to pxe that was necessary to get at least as far as booting the bootloader:

And now here's a patch to tftpd I needed so it wouldn't croak... at the risk of making it less secure... prolly better use version 0.36, because 0.37 won't even configure on my system.

These changes may turn out to be unnecessary and/or counterproductive once I solve other problems, but at least now they look like steps in the right direction. (PS - gendiff is your friend)
