I already have diskless working out of the box with obsd as
term-server and a generic PC as term. but this thin diskless
workstation is something I've borrow from school because they are
unused and I would like it to boot with bsd kernel.

As described in my first post I've already tested with bsd.rd from
3.7/3.8 dir on the mirrors.

What really confuses me is that it's freezing,
>>OpenBSD/i386 PXEBOOT 1.02
booting tftp:/bsd 4807268-
right here.

I tried a linux kernel and it did boot the kernel at least.
I might be missing something for the Geode GX1 in my GENERIC kernel?
