I've done some more digging, and it appears that the PXE BIOS in the
computers I'm testing with do not look at the sname field. They do look
at option 54 ("server-identifier" in Juniper JUNOS). It would probably
be more "correct" then to duplicate that and use (siaddr, option 54) and
ignore sname (since that is what it looks like the PXE BIOS does).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
