What do you mean "PXE boot"? I think this is an intel/x86 world term.
This is a standard Open Firmware command:
  "boot <device> <params>"

Specifically, (assuming you have not defined the file, IP configuration, and TFTP server) in this case you will be TFTPing the image that that a BOOTP packet tells "net1" to load

Is this _still_ true? I think at some point Xen actually wanted to see this string to verify that the person actually wanted to boot Xen and has since been removed. You should be able to boot without it, if not we need to find out why.
