You can't have multiple 'default' files (that's why it's called default ...).

What you can do is group them by IP address (e.g. the '10.1.*.*' net
would be referenced via pxelinux.cfg/0A01) or give the dhcp server
the filename with the pxelinux special options (options 211-214 AFAIR,
but see the manpage for this). Both work like a charm.

BTW: You can also work with symlinks in the tftp server directory, since
the tftp server dereferences the symlinks to the actual file. So symlinking
'0A01 -> default' would get the 10.1.*.* net to use the default config,
'0A02 -> dellpc' would configure this net for something different.
