archiso-pxe-server script is updated:
* -b option is removed, similar option now is -m
* -l new option to select install_dir
* works with multiple syslinux cfg files (all are parsed to find IPAPPEND)
* copy all *.c32 *.com *.0 instead of few files.

and tested:
* inside live-medium
* in machine using .iso
* booting via PXE under qemu-kvm and VirtualBox.

NOTE: backguard compatibility (2010.05 and current master git) is removed.
