[ipxe-devel] Entering String in menu-context possible?

Hi list,

Im brooding about following problem:

If a client is asking for an IP-address in pxe-mode, it is possible,
that there is no dns-name ready for him (first start i.e.). My idea is
generating an dynamic ipxe-script which asks for a name, if no
dns-information is available.

After this i could create a new request with giving the entered name to
the server.

Is it possible to offer an input-field in menu for entering this? The
"read"-command comes imho at the bottom of the screen and leaves the
menu. But the "config"-command brings a much more good looking
possibility for entering text. Is this mechanism usable for own issues?
