The non-com0 pxeboot is using the bios console output calls - which
end up on the serial port.
You should be able to use the command 'console com0' to pxeboot
to get the pxe code to use the serial port - and then pass the
value into the kernel.
(I think that is enough for the kernel to use the baud rate that
is already in use as well.)
