Reading around on the net, theres some flaws with FreeBSD and PXE, which I
get and BSD should be a little more current (I would love http support with
it, but that's another subject)    Currently chain loading due to legacy
environment, eventually will be moving toward a better method of install
(with any luck), but for now, stuck trying to keep legacy alive and still
move forward with future progress.

I did run across a bug(?) which does seem to be fine w/ gpxe+pxelinux, but
ipxe+pxelinux fails.

Chain loading is: (g|i)pxe ->pxelinux-4.06->pxeboot(freebsd)

BIOS drive C: is disk0
BIOS drive D: is disk1
BIOS drive E: is disk2
BIOS drive F: is disk3

PXE version 2.1, real mode entry point @869c:0321
BIOS 538kB/3405832kB available memory

FreeBSD/i386 bootstrap loader, Revision 1.1
pxe_open: my addr:    X.X.X.X
pxe_open: server addr: X.X.X.X
pxe_open: server path: /pxeroot
pxe_open: gateway ip:
pxe_open: gatehops:    0
panic: free: guard2 fail @ 0x5bd24 + 1449 from pxetftp.c:687
--> Press a key on the console to reboot <--

Using: iPXE 1.0.0+ (71727) - built w/ pxelinux installed - UNDI only,
tested on a dell 2950..

Any help appreciated.
