You can't do this with gPXE.  You need to upgrade to iPXE, which you can find 
at http://ipxe.org - this will interpret the kernel command line as an iPXE 
command line.

For example, in your setup:

  linux16 /ipxe.lkrn dhcp net0 && sanboot \

(as a single line in grub.cnf).

Please feel free to forward this message to gpxe at etherboot.org.  Unfortunately 
I can't reply there directly, since Marty still censors any messages I send to 
any gPXE list.
