And does it work now? If not, what errors do you see? And paste the ls information you pasted above again.

Unfortunately it does not work. I think it may have something to do with the "dangling symlink"?
Here are the contents of the respective folder

The files are still to large. I wonder if this has to do with some modules that are being compiled for your nvidia card.

That Sounds plausible, since the Setup was working up to the point when the graphics driver was being compiled

Seems the need to update the tftpd server grows...

Background: atftpd only supports downloads up to 32MB - I'll see what I can do create some new packages that will probably pull some other tftpd server in.

Would I be able to install one manually?

I am running it manually atm, but it involves using dpkg -r --force-xxx to get rid of atftpd and apt-get download another tftpd and manually installing it. This will cause the pluto-newmd-interactor package to be broken (in terms of package management, not functionality).

I am currently working on getting the MySQL glitches of 1604 sorted out. Between that and getting VDR onto a rpi MD, I'll see if I can find some time to get another tftpd into the mix.

Maverick,

just a heads up. Installation of another tftpd server was successful. I will now need to implement the config for it, modify some package definitions in sqlCVS and hopefully, that will get us moving forward.

I was that update for tftpd was up and installed it. So far that was working. However there was trouble with nvidia-375, which did not install correctly, so that I could not complete a wizard.
I decided to delete the me and start again. How the md won't even Setup and quits with Kernel-panic 0x00000200

You need to be a bit more verbose.

I'm trying:
I want to setup a new md (asrock ion300). Pxe booting works. It loads the initial image, but does not complete the setup. Instead it quits with a kernel-panic message.
Normally its supposed to setup the image, download driverd etc, until it says we announce ourselves to the router.....it never gets this far. Kernel-panic happens quite early.

to confirm, that's before announcing to the router?  Which version/arch of lmce?
