can't find filename when using ipxe

RE: can't find filename when using ipxe
You shouldn't need to specify it. If you want to debug what information ipxe gets from the dhcp server, you can manually test it out.

When you start up iPXE, go into the shell by pressing Ctrl-B. Then you type "dhcp" (without quotes) and press enter. If it doesn't give you any errors, type out the command "config" to see what parameters dhcp gave you. You should see as the filename. If you see everything required for the "autoboot" command to work should be present and things should work. If you do not see the in filename, your DHCP server is most likely setup wrong, or you're having a network communication issue (maybe a network card driver issue).
