Bad news! I could resign asking a scheduler, but booting from a pointed device
is pivotal.

I thought about such a bypass. It is possible to tell lilo which image(label)
it should load (lilo -R <label> does this). So, lilo installed in MBR could be
the main bootloader and pxelinux could be used for accesing network and
reading configurations.
It is not an elegant solution, however, it could works.
