starts http monkey server (required for PXE boot)
starts dnsmasq (dhcpcd and tftp) servers (required for PXE boot)

you can use them by issuing following commands in console:

now you can launch your favorite browser and type your IP addres in URL field. You should see /porteus folder served by http server.
You can also boot second PC through PXE :)

BTW in 64bit you just need to issue 'pxe-boot' in console for the same effect (Jay - you could import /usr/bin/pxe-boot so we will have the same porteus.cfg syntax)
