I had the same issue. After instaling syslinux on the tftp server and after
configuring pxelinux (which is part of syslinux I had the pleasure to see
the the ethernet card running pxelinux and then begin to try to download a
kernel. Unfortunatly I can't go further : I begin to believe that I jumped
over important steps, like understanding what should reside in a rescue
floppy, or how to play with linux boot options :)
I'm happy to know that I'm not alone ;))
Viel SpaB, Bernhard.
