I use pxelinux and the following config file:

display logo
label linux
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img vga=0x0314 ip=192.168.0.249:192.168.0.2:0.0.0.0:255.255.255.0::ff
ipappend 1

or

display logo
label linux
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img vga=0x0314 ip=192.168.0.249:192.168.0.2:0.0.0.0:255.255.255.0::eth0ff

Please do not post the same thread more than once in a forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it there once makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
