In case it's still relevant at this stage, as this doesn't seem to have
been mentioned:

As Prentice implied, juggle explicit tftpboot files, rather than using
labels, assuming you don't want to interact with the boot on the
console.  For that I use http://subtrac.sara.nl/oss/pxeconfig, which has
support for transient configurations, e.g. boot to configure/provision
and then reboot from a different PXE image automagically.
