I'm also using a menu and doing it in a (as I think) simpler fashion:

BIOS > NIC's PXE ROM > DHCP and TFTP > ipxe.kpxe > script (see below) > 
menu.c32 > menu.cfg

The script goes like this:
chain http://my-server/menu/menu.c32 http://my-server/menu.cfg

menu.c32 is from syslinux 3.86, later versions use a different module 
menu.cfg contains the menu's configuration

Hope this helps,
