Angry Boot SuSE 9.2 Live DVD via PXE

I'm trying to boot a SuSE 9.2 Live-DVD via PXE. Here is what I accomplished so far:

- Configure my DHCP Server
- Configure my TFTP Server
- Boot a copy of PXElinux via PXE
- Boot the "vmlinuz" (kernel) from the Live-DVD
- mount the "initrd.gz" as initial ramdisk

My problem now is, that when I boot the PC via PXE it loads the kernel and then displays the following errormessages:

init: Cannot find the CD I was booted from - doh !

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

As far as I can tell, PXElinux doesn't load the whole DVD from the TFTP-server but only the kernel. Therefore I tried to also make the DVD available via FTP, but I don't know how to tell the kernel to look for the rest of the DVD on the FTP-Server. (ftp://boot:*******@

Does anybody know, how I can accomplish this?
