Thanks for your answers, Daniel and Stephan!
I tried first to install from a Windows partition, but making a long
story of GRUB4DOS, WinXP MBR, mistaking swap partition with /boot and
the like a short one, I'm now left with absolutely unbootable laptop. :o)

I almost have the LocalNet instructions working - did everything
as written, the laptop even finds the DHCP, but ends with
PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout
Is there a way I can check whether the TFTP server is visible from the
local network? The Netboot instructions say something about enabling
TFTP server in xinetd, but I don't have xinetd installed (the server
box is a vanilla Breezy install with just tftpd-hpa, apache2 and
dhcp3-server added as per the instructions); the LocalNet ones
suggest that just installing tftpd-hpa should be enough.
FWIW, I tried both filename="pxelinux.0"; and
and I can get to the files via Firefox, so it
doesn't seem to be a problem with file permissions.
It's clear that whoever set up the font colorings for most programming
modes has seen too many Peter Max posters, or did more acid than I did
in the 60s. -- Charles R. Martin, gnu.emacs.help
