Well I solved my problem using the defaults by now , I renamed my kernel to
linux, and in that case the program reads its configuration from the default
archive ( default unde /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ ).
I did not read my kernel has to have a particular extension or name? where
is that? or how should I name it ?
Lotta thanx 4 your time..
