Hi All,

We are PXE booting into FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE to perform system builds.
The pxeboot.bs file was recompiled with TFTP support.  8.2-RELEASE
builds were working fine until we attempted a build on bare metal in
an environment that utilizes vlan tagging.  When the system loaded the
pxeboot.bs file it prompted that a disk containing the mfsroot.gz be
inserted.

I have a couple of questions that I am hoping I can use to glean a
proper solution:

1) Does the 8.2-RELEASE pxeboot.bs source code support use of vlan tagging?
2) Can I get vlan tagging support with newer 8.2 code?
3) Will the 9.0-RELEASE code have better support for vlan tagging and
can I use it to build an 8.2-RELEASE system?

Take care
