Dear Michael,

Two points here.

First, as explained in http://www.hdt-project.org/wiki/Dump#UsingTFTP , 
Dump mode is currently only working with PXE.

Second point, you shouldn't have reach this step of exporting as you are 
not having a PXE stack loaded. So I'll fix that for beta 4.

Thanks for your report, hope you enjoyed HDT anyway ;o)
