I am attempting to chainload a file from TFTP. I have the following
lines  in the configuration file:

 kernel pxechn.c32
 append\x86\wdsnbp.com -W -o 66.x=0a:0e:8d:96 -S

The TFTP server at is operational and wdsnbp.com is
available at the indicated path. I have tried various combinations of
colons, forward and back slashes and URL schemes.

However, all i get from pxechn.c32 is 

pxechn.c32: Attempting to load '\x86\wdsnbp.com': 2:No such file or directory

and it does not even attemt to send any packets to (I
checked with WireShark). What I am doing wrong?

TIA for any input.
