cobbler configuration | wrong /cobbler/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/


hello, after executing command "cobbler sync", two files are created in path /cobbler/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/. their names are composed from mac addresses.
however content of the files is:
Code:
DEFAULT local
PROMPT 0
TIMEOUT 0
TOTALTIMEOUT 0
ONTIMEOUT local

LABEL local
        LOCALBOOT 0
this is wrong because it's trying to boot from local drive.
instead, there should be something like:
Code:
TIMEOUT 200
TOTALTIMEOUT 6000
ONTIMEOUT local

LABEL local
        MENU LABEL (local)
        MENU DEFAULT
        LOCALBOOT 0

LABEL abc-i386
        kernel /images/grml-i386/linux26
        MENU LABEL abc-i386
        append initrd=/images/abc-i386/minirt26.gz noeject boot=live ssh=start fetch=http://10.10.10.10/i386/abc/abc-medium.squashfs  hostname=abc-i386 domain=local.lan suite=generic26
        ipappend 2
how can this be fixed ?
otherwise if i delete the files, so only default file remains, then after restarting my testing virtual machine it throws menu where i specify which profile i can use

AFAIR, that'll be from not having the netboot enabled option on the machine profile.

exactly, thanks for advice. Parameter --netboot-enabled=Y has to be used for this purpose
