Ah, okay. That wasn't clear to me in the wiki page on the network XML.
I'll give that a shot then.

(tries)

Okay, still the same error. Here's the new XML being generated:

<network>
<name>testbr31018</name>
<forward mode='nat' />
<bridge name='testbr31018' stp='on' forwardDelay='0' />
<ip address='192.168.163.1' netmask='255.255.255.0'>
<tftp root='/tmp/tmp.6LUTF06Gkm/tftpboot' />
<dhcp>
<bootp file='pxelinux.0' />
<range start='192.168.163.100' end='192.168.163.199' />
</dhcp>
</ip>
</network>

Are there any relative pathing values that should be used by the tftp
and bootp tags? Should the tftp->root attribute point to the work
directory and then bootp->file refer to tftpboot/pxelinux.0?
