There are no messages which got printed out except the dots for loading
the Kernelimage.

Something like that between the lines of "-":

Tomorrow I will check it again and send better infos.
At home I have not such a system and I have no access to the RSB-Board

Is there something like a verbose mode in pxelinux?
