I tried it last night, although it and apparently most other things hate
the alc0 interface.
Eventually it seemed like an NFS server would be useful, and pxeboot
will start a FreeBSD livefs. But only directly, entering FreeBSD's
pxeboot as the filename in DHCP.
chainloader --raw (pd)/images/freebsd/boot/pxeboot
it loads pxeboot, but then:
netboot: couldn't probe pxenet0
pxe_open: netif_open() failed
can't load 'kernel'
So it loads pxeboot, but then pxeboot can't use the pxenet0 device.
