Hey Michael et al,

Thanks for the reply, and pointing me at iPXE! I downloaded it, enabled 
serial output, and built it with make DEBUG=iscsi:7,scsi:7. Then set up 
a VM (VMWare, VirtualBox doesn't seem to like iPXE?), set its CD to 
point to ipxe.iso, enabled the serial port and pointed it at a file and 
fired up the VM (and tweaked my dhcp server etc). Here's the output I got:

ok
