[syslinux] pxe floppy

Hi guys,

  I have been fighting with Syslinux and PXElinux for two days now.  I have gotten
the floppy to boot but can't get pxelinux to work.  I get a message:

   No !PXE or PXENV+ API fournd; we're dead

  I am guessing this means I need something else on the floppy?

  The floppy has:

# ls /floppy/
total 24K
-r-xr-xr-x 1 9.4K Nov  2 16:31 ldlinux.sys
-rwxr-xr-x 1  14K Nov  2 16:50 pxelinux.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1  207 Nov  3 14:33 syslinux.cfg

  The Syslinux.cfg looks like this:

Say      Begin
SERIAL 0 57600
Say      Hello

Say      Booting PXElinux
DEFAULT  pxelinux.0

Say      Append
APPEND   serial 0 57600

Say      IPAppend

  From the debugging messages I put in, he dosen't like the IPAPPEND statement.

  Can anyone point me to a working pxelinux configuration?

  Thanks for your time.
