Re: [Linux-ia64] PXE boot off HP zx6000

   Here's a know configuration that works:

   Debian 3.0 server (ia32)
     tftpd-hpa      0.28-2
     dhcp           2.0pl5-11

tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd in.tftpd -t 1
 -s /tftpboot

        host zx6000 { 
                hardware ethernet xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;
                fixed-address zx6000;
                filename "elilo.efi";

You'll need an elilo.conf or some permutation of AABBCCDD.conf,
which is your IP in hex (just like pxelinux).  Is the kernel
file elilo.conf points at stripped?  You may want to strip it
and gzip it to see if that helps.  Look in the logs to see
what it's transfered and which file it's getting an error on.
Are you loading an initrd as well (what size)?  What firmware
is on your zx6000 ('info fw' from efi)?  Thanks,
