I am trying to install xenEnterprize3.2.0 on my machine through pxe install.
My tftfserver server is setup properly and working fine for other pxe  instllation ( for other linux distribution ).

Problem: Pxeboot hangs ( does not proceed further ) after i enter label at boot prompt,

Is there anything i need to change in the config file setup shown below?

In what situation does pxe boot hangs?

Steps followed:
1 Copied the files mboot.c32 from install CD Pack and pxelinux.0 from /usr/lib/syslinux to the /tftboot directory.
2. Copied the files install.img, vmlinuz, and xen.gz from the Base Pack CD (found in the root of the Base Pack CD, and in its /boot directory respectively), and place them in /tftpboot/xenserver.
3. Made a directory called pxelinux.cfg inside /tftboot and create a file named default. The file contents depend on how you want to configure your PXE boot envrinment. For example, you might have a configuration file like the following:

config file contents:
default xenserver
label xenserver
kernel mboot.c32
append path/to/boot/directory/xen.gz watchdog com1=115200,8n1i  console=com1,tty --- path/to/boot/directory/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8  ramdisk_size=32758 --- path/to/boot/directory/install.img

(where path/to/boot/directory is the directory where you copied install.img, vmlinuz, and xen.gz files in the previous step).

Thanks in advance
