[syslinux] more on PXELinux confiuration file woes and "blkSize"

I just joined this list so sorry i don't just reply folowing mails.
I experienced the same problem where the boot just stop after reaching Ready. 
I am using my own tftp server written in Java which previously has succeeded 
a pxe boot. While searching for the "Ready" problem I found that the 
tftpserver returned the wrong blksize. Instead off returning the size off the 
data it returned the size off the packet (diff =4 octets) after solving this 
my boot went through.
don't now if this is the problem but worth considering?

How utterly weird.  I'll look into it...
