Well I made great progress! I have dhcpd/PXE working, and I'm booting
via OpenBSD/snapshots/i386/pxeboot with bsd.rd in my tftpd root

Looks like there is a OpenBSD/3.5/i386/pxeboot too... now to modify the
bsd.rd to program my custom install. How is that file made?

$ file bsd.rd
bsd.rd: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped
