Tried to follow your  description, but I seem to have lost some thing,
the client now starts the PXEBOOT process and it looks in the
(/var/diskless/FreeBSD/)/boot/defaults/loader.conf that says

But according to your instruction the kernel was installed i=
the /var/tftp/boot/

Should I simply
   make DISTDIR=3D/var/diskless/FreeBSD installkernel
