I suggest you use elilo-3.4 instead of 3.0. The package contains an
example of the dcph/pxe setup I used to test this. The problem was
that the ISC DHCPD needed some extensions to support PXE/Ia64. Those
extensions were added by Intel but I don't know if they ever made it
into the official ISC DHCPD server, you'd have to check.

Anyway, in the elilo-3.4 package, go to examples/netboot. You'll
find a PXE config file.

Hope this helps.

PS: Brett Johnson is the new maintainer of the package and he has setup 
a SourceForge web for elilo:
