I just was playing with this a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately,
I am not near my system to give all the particulars. I found that I
needed to add a couple of lines in the /etc/dhcpd.conf to make sure that
pxe could function properly. I also had to make sure that the pxe
script was starting up correctly. Check that the dhcpd.conf has entries
in it to allow for booting. Make sure that /etc/pxe/pxe.conf is looking
like it will work in your environment.
I hope this points you in the right direction. I am sorry that I
can not give you more details.
