This is more user-level question. But for last few days I'm unable to 
post question via forum.ipxe.org.

I wonder if this supported option (passing parameters from PXELinux to iPXE)

I have PXELinux boot:

LABEL startipxe
   KERNEL ipxe.lkrn
   APPEND set MYVAR some-data

And from chain loaded ipxe with embed script:

echo MYVAR: ${MYVAR}
... other stuff

I was unable to make this work (PXElinux from Ubuntu 20.04 syslinux 

I solved this for myself by some small hack in ipxe code.

But I wonder if this should works out of the box?

Best regards
Robert Socha
