here is my pxe/default lines, maybe
will do what you need:

label ubuntu-karmic-amd64-handsoff
        kernel ubuntu/karmic/amd64/linux
        append initrd=ubuntu/karmic/amd64/initrd.gz root=/dev/rd/0 rw
locale=en_US console-setup/layoutcode=us netcfg/wireless_wep=
netcfg/choose_interface=eth0 netcfg/get_hostname= DEBCONF_DEBUG=5
tasksel:tasksel/first="ubuntu-desktop" -- vga=6
