Thanks for the info, I found that the problem is my NET4501 (soekris). 
Unfortunately my Laptop also seems to have broken PXE code, I got another 
box booting fine.
Any experiences with a net4501 and BIOS versions higher than 1.24? Like 
mentioned, the box gets DHCP info, loads pxeboot and after this message 
immediately reboots:
CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 00 24 C0 33 70
PXE Loader 1.00

Building the boot loader arguments
Relocating the loader and the BTX
Starting the BTX loader

Thanks a lot,
