	The stack dump message is white text on black background.  Right
above the stack dump message, still in yellow-on-blue from the PXELINUX
settings, is the text: 

Building the boot loader arguments 
Relocating the loader and the BTX 
Starting the BTX loader 

<change to white-on-black>  
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.01 

<stack dump>   

	Would that business of "arguments... Relocating... Starting..." tell
us anything?  
	BTW, you should be able to recreate this with the pxeboot.0 that I
sent you-- if it works, it'll produce a nice error message about a missing
	In the meantime, I'll try to find someone to converse with about

Bother.  Unfortunately this dump doesn't make munch sense to me, for 
obvious reasons; I think we need to try to involve the pxeboot maintainer.
