We've done PXE booting using Peter Anvin's SYSLINUX for PXE as the
bootstrapper. If you run 'beoboot -2 -i -o /tmp/foofoo' or similar,
the beoboot tool will spit out separate kernel and initrd images which you
can then supply to SYSLINUX.

Naturally, several other arragements are possible with PXE.
