mount of 'MM_THEME_URL=hunt:themes/G.A.N.T.sfs' failed

After pxe booting my frontend, it hangs on "configuring MythTV ..." for a whlile, then I get: "mount of 'MM_THEME_URL=hunt:themes/G.A.N.T.sfs' failed"

I am running mythtv-0.22_3 (from ports) in a freebsd 8.0 jail, with ram-minimyth-0.22.0-72. Below is the layout of my tftpboot directory, my pxelinux.cfg/default file contents, and the minimyth.conf options. Let me know if you need any other info or whatever. Thanks!

Rather than putting kernel and themes in PXEClient, you might try putting them in PXEClient/minimyth-<minimyth-version>. MiniMyth tries to guess the location of the kernel but cannot always do it unless the kernel is in the default location due to not having enough information.

Alternatively, you could include MM_THEME_URL and MM_THEMEOSD_URL in your minimyth.conf file.
