The easier way is to enable syslog debugging. See the
http://ipxe.org/console wiki page for details. You need to compile a new
ipxe binary with syslog console enabled, your dhcp server must set ip to
syslog server (log-servers setting in ISC DHCP) and your syslog server
must be set to listen on the default UDP port (514, I believe) and
configured to log the ipxe messages to some file.
