My work entirely. Too bad I was wrong. :)

Yeah, I saw that later in inetd.conf.

Oh. I expected it to have one. (As does Yale tftpd.)

So, for some reason unkown to me, netbooting my Soekris

It used to successfully interface with DragonFly's DHCP, 
TFTP and NFS services, but now the TFTP step times out.
