First, PXE configuration is covered in Section 6.10 of the FAQ:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq6.html#PXE

As I recall, configuration is reasonably simple:
  • enable tftpd in inetd.conf & re-run /etc/netstart.sh as root (covered in Section 6.2.5...)
  • copy bsd.rd and pxeboot to your tftp server's /tftpboot directory
  • create /etc/boot.conf file with 'set tty com0'
  • All you need then is a 'filename pxeboot"' entry in your dhcpd.conf file (this is when dhcpd and tftpd run on the same machine).
As I remember, the information in the FAQ was pretty complete. Reading the related manpages was helpful too.
