Unhappy PXE install on default IP


I've build an PXE server what installs the OS for me automatic. But what I want to do now is this:
The client gets an IP from the DHCP server
The client request a file from the tftp server
The client has to auto install the OS what is written under the label with his IP address.

So the default file must look like this:

timeout 0
display hi.msg

kernel vmlinuz-7.3
append initrd=initrd-7.3.img

kernel vmlinuz-7.4
append initrd=initrd-7.4.img

kernel vmlinuz-7.5
append initrd=initrd-7.5.img

kernel vmlinuz-7.6
append initrd=initrd-7.6.img

When the server with ip comes up, it must automaticly install the stuff that is with label
and if the server with ip comes up, it must automaticly install the stuff that is with label


So how can I do this?


Ps: I'm tired now, it 4am in the morning I've been working on it since 2pm in the afternoon So I will go to bed now

Ok, since I don't want to spam in this forum I will post my other issue here also.

I want to combine the PXE installation server with a FAI server for Debian. So that I can Install Fedora, RedHat, CentOS and Debian from the same server the same easy way. The only thing for the RedHat family OS's I have to do on the client is type the label name after 'boot:' and it will install the requested OS at that label name, is it possible to do this also for Debian by combining the FAI server with the PXE server. So that I can type after the 'boot:' Install_Debian and it will install Debian, or is this just impossible....

I've been reading allot but I cant find the answer on this one...
