Loading /usr/tftpboot/kernel.s.1... <sleep> Well, it looks like I joined the list at just about the right time. :-) I've got a kernel that I've used to netboot FreeBSD with off of 3c509 cards. After many struggles (thanks Ken) I managed to get a boot image built and get a floppy going. Using the before mentioned kernel, I see it pulled down and begin booting... and then it panics when it tries to mount root. I'm using a 3c905 card to elicit this much out of the setup. Just as a side note, I _couldn't_ get the 3c905c to do the same thing. It claims it is "unable to find 3c90x". (I don't think this is your issue, as you say that you do see ethernet packets). You could try throwing on the logging from tftpd ( -l in inetd.conf ) to get more info out of the server.
