'boot net:dhcp' that you're often advised to type silently tries to
boot by RARP without complaining about the :dhcp. I gave up trying to
boot with DHCP. meh.
of course freebsd 'loader' will still want dhcp, so you need to have
rarp + tftp running on the same machine to provide 'loader' to the
firmware, and also a dhcp server running somewhere. you do not need a
bootparams server. iirc 'loader' will quietly use either tftp or nfs
to load all it's config and forth bootstrap and kernel and modules.
