Hi,

I just had a big fight with a Compaq DESKPRO workstation to PXE boot
Debian-Installer. After some hacking around bios bugs I ended up with
pxelinux complaining that the tsize option is not implemented in the
TFTP.

Googling for the exact error message revealed a simple truth: tftpd
just does not support tsize and pxelinux requires it.

The Sarge installer manual for PXE boot should mention that the tftpd
package is not suitable for PXE boot and atftpd (untested) or
tftpd-hpa (works) must be used.

MfG
	Goswin

Do you mean the big, fat note in [1] is not enough?

Closing this bug.
