Hi Michael,
Hi list,

Ive tested the new "console" command, which works fine only if i compile
my undionly.kpxe with the following command:

menu.ipxe contains:
dhcp || goto dhcp
console -x 1024 -y 768 -p tftp:// --keep ||

make  EMBED=menu.ipxe bin/undionly.kpxe DEBUG=vesafb

running qemu works fine and jumps into the wanted mode, but shows really
lots of debug-information:

 /usr/local/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 --enable-kvm -vga std -m 1G -bootp
tftp:// -tftp /opt/gu/netinstall/

BUT with

make  EMBED=menu.ipxe bin/undionly.kpxe # without debug

running the same qemu results the error 1cd8c2002.

Tested with qemu 1.6.1. Running console-command on a real (Thinkpad) 
computer works fine.

Maybe this is interesting for you..
