IIRC (having set this up a little while ago) TFTP of preseed.cfg should 
work with the squeeze netboot image (well it was working for me!) but 
isn't supported in the etch and earlier images. I was using the squeeze 
netboot image over PXE to get the tftp support, and then forcing the 
install back to etch via preseed.cfg.
