It's not.  It's pure random chance... whatever NBP you're using sticks
the disk image in high memory, and if you're lucky it won't get
overwritten during boot; if you're unlucky it will.

Note you can use PXELINUX as an NBP just fine with 'doze PXE server.


P.S. Please don't send me off-list replies unless they contain
confidential information.
