 TFTP can be used to get the boot image onto a DisklessWorkstation; see DisklessWorkstationNotes. 
 Getting firmware onto a network device is invariably done with TFTP. M1122 supports it in it's [ROM] monitor. So do almost everything CiscoSystems have ever made. 
+Note from WilliamLangford.  
+We started experimenting with using PXE DHCP TFTP booting a DOS Ghost image to ease the duplication of servers we send to the field. Our DHCP server is the same as our TFTP server, running under Slackware version 10.x. pxelinux.0 was refusing to find any information setup in the DHCPD or TFTP config files until we added the "next-server same.server.ip.address;" to the subnet definition we were attempting to PXE boot in dhcpd.conf. Apparently pxelinux.0 wanted that information to know what to connect to for TFTP booting.
