Headline: Linaros pandaboard hardware pack for Ubuntu comes with initial PXE support at U-Boot.
Acceptance: Installing the Pandaboard Hardware Pack on top of the LEB/Ubuntu image, stopping the u-boot boot process and being able to use PXE to boot a kernel or any image from network.

(rsalveti, Jun23) John, please go over the WI list and add any other WI that you think it's missing. This will help targeting the work for 11.06.
