Help!I have problem in using pxelinux about menu.c32 and vesamenu.c32

Thanks very much for syslinux and pxelinux,they bring me many conveniences.I have problem in some computers.My english is very poor,so i submit in chinese and poor english.First I say sorry!

我在使用pxelinux时,在sis900网卡的电脑上出了问题。
出现的问题是:在default配置文件中调用menu.c32或者vesamenu.c32时都死机。
但是在default文件中直接调用DEFAULT memdisk c=638 h=2 s=18 floppy append initrd=netboot.zip可以直接启动并进入网络启动盘,接下来使用正常的。
我使用3com的boot image editor生成的启动菜单可以正常使用。

When I use pxelinux on my computer with sis900 netcard,I have problem.
The problem is: when pxelinux.0 use the config file "default",the computer halt.
I use "DEFAULT vesamenu.c32" and "DEFAULT menu.c32" in the "default " file,the problem occur.
But when I only put "DEFAULT memdisk c=638 h=2 s=18 floppy append initrd=netboot.zip" in the "default" file,the compute boot normally,it can go into net boot dos.
When i use the pxe file (boot menu file) genarated by "3com's boot image editor",my computer work normally.

我认为,问题出在menu.c32和vesamenu.c32的运行上,应该和网卡无关,因为指定memdisk命令可以正常运行。问题应该是cpu对menu.c32和vesamenu.c32的运行上。
I think,the problem is :menu.c32 and resamenu.c32 don't work on my computer.And it's not the netcard's error,because if i don't use menu.c32 and vesamenu.c32,it work normally.
I think it's the cpu who cause the problem,perhaps my cpu doesn't work with menu.c32 and vrsamenu.c32.

如果有人能帮我解决下面两个问题就太好了。
1、能否提供一个比较简单的象3com的pxe一样的启动文件,比menu.c32更简单。
2、在查找配置文件能否以mac的前6位查找,这样可以针对某型号的网卡设置单独的配置文件。
It's nice if someone can solve my below problem
1.I need a simple menu,simpler than menu.c32,like 3com's pxe file.
2.when pxelinux.0 find configuration file ,after find the file named by mac ,i hope it find the file named by the first 6 bit of the mac,so i can use a same configuration file for the same model net card.

Obviously true.

Wrong conclusion. The most likely cause of the problem is the PXE stack
(part of the network card), followed by the BIOS. This is especially so
since you're using the notoriously broken SiS900.

One thing you can do is to load Etherboot/gPXE and use it as a
replacement PXE stack.

Very unlikely.
