RE: Load menu.ipxe onto iPXE usb image?
OK, now it's more clear: you want more of a "Boot disk" version of iPXE... but not having a DHCP Server is somewhat problematic for creating scripts and naming variables, but there are workarounds.

Consider: ipxe.usb is essentially ipxe.lkrn for USB/Disk. So any drivers embedded into iPXE... which means that net0 might not be "net0" if there are multiple NICs in the system.

a) Creating a menu to dump all of the Interfaces/NICs/MACs might be beneficial.

b) Create a submenu to select and set an IP address to an interface might also be a good idea.

Basically, you could make iPXE Menu version of Redhat's 'system-config-network' TUI - and that would be very cool indeed. Because config is kinda clunky.
