I'm not sure. I vaguely recall that pxeboot (which is a stripped down version of
"boot") uses NFS to read /boot/loader.conf.
I'd try putting it in /boot/loader.conf on the root fs on the server, even if it
is using grub later.
This all assumes that your kernel is built with "options NFS_ROOT". If it built
with "options BOOTP" etc, then it is an entirely different story.
Good luck with it, rick
ps: At some point, capturing the packets and looking at them in wireshark should
tell you what it is doing and when.
