PXE no client boot

i want to install a lot of FedoraCore2 server with ks over the network booting with pxelinux...everything works fine during the installation rocess after the installation, the BIOS correctly picks up the new config and unloads the PXE stack and the i get these message
root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358smp ro root=LABEL=/ 
   [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x137ae0]
initrd /initrd-2.6.5-1.358smp.img
   [Linux-initrd @ 0x1fea0000, 0x2f617 bytes]
and i dont know why the boot process stops there...maybe i have wrong kernel parameters. i hope anyone can help me to fix this problem its urgent

here is my pxelinux file
