Using pxeboot for installation (bug in pxeboot - tftp)

I have used pxeboot to load freebsd 5.2.1 through tftp. It seems as the tftp 
client in pxeboot fails to send an data acknowledge after the last datapacket 
in each tftp transfer. (not very nice for server which resends last 
datapacket several times)

BTW: Does anybody know a way to specify freebsd to retrieve an install.cfg 
from outside mfs_root ?
