Support already exists for NetBoot/PXE and works fine with DragonyFly.
 Last I tried (with FreeBSD 5) I ran into some type of issue that was
fixed in DragonFly prior.  I really wish that I can remember what the
exact issue was but I cannot at this point.   For all I know it may
just work out of the box now with FreeBSD 6.  I should give this a
test soon.
