That's basically what I did, yes. (Except that the `loopback mount'
is called `mdconfig' in FreeBSD. ;-)

Offhand I'm not sure whether tftpd does a chroot() to its base dir or
not. If it does, you cannot symlink it to outside the chroot'ed area.
I copied /cdrom/boot/loader over to /tftpboot/boot/loader, and made
the symlink there.

Ha ha, still, shipping it from Dresden to Amsterdam would cost a
fortune. Anyway, I'm quite happy I've got that box to play with.
It's probably the largest machine so far I've been able to run
