There appear to be two issues in the EL6 version of pxelinux.0.
1. Using tcpdump, I see it does download the pxelinux.cfg/default file,
but it fails to comprehend the contents. It downloads the kernel and
initrd if I type those parameters manually at that prompt.
2. That kernel panics for some reason I don't understand.
Both of these issues seem to go away if I drop-in the pxelinux.0 from
Fedora 12. (havne't tested other versions).
