[syslinux] PXELINUX: lpxelinux.0 configuration

Hi all,

I try to switch from pxelinux.0 to lpxelinux.0 as a PXE boot loader. 
With pxelinux.0 I am able to boot my Linux kernel and initrd without any 

When I change DHCP option 67 to lpxelinux.0 this file gets loaded via 
TFTP. On the client screen I see the welcome message (PXELINUX 6.03 lwIP 
…) but nothing more. Sniffing revealed that there are no further 
attempts to load anything.

I expected lpxelinux.0 to load the same configuration file as 
pxelinux.0, either by TFTP or HTTP.
This is from my default config file:
APPEND initrd=

What am I missing? Do I have to set any further DHCP options?
