No it can't. It's deliberate that it can't and the reasoning for that is that packets sent in proxy mode can only go to a PXE client, which doesn't know what to do with (eg) a root-path option. If that reasoning is shown to be incorrect, it would be relatively simple to change the code to allow arbitrary options. Cheers, Simon.
