That's not the issue here.  SYSLINUX has dealt with these issues since 
1.49 (by the way, if that's how Etherboot deals with it they're 
guaranteed to have problems on PXE systems, which usually have a lot 
more baggage than just 64K.)

The problem is more likely that the DOC and PXE BIOS extensions are 
conflicting.  There isn't much to suggest other than "don't do that 
then"; since you're obviously booting via PXE you don't need the DOC BIOS.
