Thanks for the reply.
I asked that because I wanted to narrow down the possibility of my
machine's inability to boot from the net.  It gets to a part where it says

	pdc_cons die !!

then it stops.  On the server, tftp log says "Connection Refused", but
the funny thing is that the client refused the connection.  I traced
the code where it printed "connection refused" and verified that the
server actually sent some data (do not know which file) and tried to
receive acknowledgement for it and failed to get any.
Do you have any ideas?
