please don't post HTML here, and try to give some ascii-readable

there ...

Don't use the Red Hat pxe package. I don't really know what this does,
but AFAIK this doesn't use pxelinux at all and uses some sort of

Grab the latest pxelinux and tftp-hpa from the website, configure 
your dhcp server (ISC dhcpd preferred - but this should already be in RH7.2) as documented and it works (at least it should work, it does 
for me). There's no need to bother with 'binld', 'pxed' and this 
stuff as long as you don't know for sure that you need them.
