[ipxe-devel] ipxe newbie booting question

I hope that you can help as I have a very quick and newbie iPXE question.

I am developing a system that allows for booting some CoreOS nodes for a
clustering project that I have going now but need, I would guess to be a
special iPXE iso for the booting.

What I would like is to be able to boot with the iPXE.iso such that it will
call a specific boot URL such as "boot.example.net" which will then
re-direct the caller to the "bootcfg.example.net" for the configuration

In the case that I need, I know where I have the dnsmasq set up on an
Internet VPS host and also where the TFTP server is located, but need to
either build an ipxe.iso that can just be put into bare-metal and vps
machines that will automatically call the dnsmasq server that I have
online, or figure out how to tell iPXE, when booted to look for the dnsmasq
server at the boot.example.net URL and I do not know how to do this with
iPXE so I am hoping that someone would be so kind as to help guide me on

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great day,
