[Grml] grml and booting via pxe

I was wondering how to get grml_1.1.iso booting via pxe.

I've already ...
... unpacked the iso to /exports/grml
... access via network to
... read http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=terminalserver and
... downloaded 
http://grml.org/terminalserver/grml_netboot_package_1.1.tar.bz2 (and 
installed it)
... found http://www.mail-archive.com/grml@mur.at/msg00802.html

Now ... that are the right parameters in pxelinux.cfg/default?

APPEND root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= boot=live lang=us nomce quiet apm=power-off nodhcp noprompt noeject initrd=grml/minirt26.gz vga=791

==> can't access tty 
==> problem mounting live file system

APPEND ramdisk_size=16384 root=/dev/ram0 rw init=/etc/init nfsdir= nodhcp noprompt noeject apm=power-off nomce initrd=grml/minirt26.gz vga=791

==> brings grml up to "Begin: Waiting for the root file system ..."

Where to find the fault?
