A friend of mine has tried a PXE floppy (build from the new etherboot 
5.3.12) to load PXELINUX.0; a menu voice of the pxelinux.cfg use the 
LOCALBOOT statement.
Selecting this statement, the PC retry to boot from the floppy... is 
this normal?
The user expected that LOCALBOOT would have tried the NEXT boot device 
(ie CDROM or HD), not the FIRST boot device (the floppy)...

(note: this has been tried this on a couple of PC...)
