Something like the "Note" here you mean?
(Note that that's the Sarge version of the manual, so it's been in there 
for some time :-)

IIRC atftp had problems with some architectures. We mention both, but we've 
found that across the board there are the least issues with tftpd-hpa.

actual issue in the installer.
