Not quite sure on what level you want a response, but PXE booting 
machine are full dhcp clients, able to take advantage of all relevant 
features.  They also support tftp otherwise they would not be able to 
download pxelinux.0.

Having said that, it would be nice to specify the IP + boot server/image 
in BIOS.
