I'm not sure what you mean by "works" :-) issuing "boot ewa0 -fi boot.img" 
didn't seem to make any difference. I still got the request/reply messages 
in syslog, and the boot still failed as before.

Just out of sheer desperation; I did try amending the "filename" stanza in 
dhcpd.conf, but, as I expected, no joy.

Thanks anyway for the prompt reply though - 'tis much appreciated.
