You can modify the image and add it yourself. Need a stock FreeBSD box
(or VM) and workon.sh.

Just need to add the appropriate binary for the TFTP server you want
to use, and make sure all its dependencies are in the image as well.
Run ldd on the binary and make sure the listed dependencies are in the

# ldd /usr/bin/tftp
        libedit.so.6 => /lib/libedit.so.6 (0x28080000)
        libncurses.so.7 => /lib/libncurses.so.7 (0x28095000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x280d8000)

Then you can set it to run at startup by adding a <shellcmd> tag to
your config (see FAQ on hidden config.xml options).

You can also add the Thinstation file to the image in the directory
you specify for tftproot.

Thinstation is nice, I've used it quite a bit in the past.
