I'm currently using a Centos PXE server and everything in the menus is working great but no matter what setting I try for local boot countdown it doesn't countdown. It sets there with "Automatic boot in 20 seconds" and never changes.

I had read that there is a problem with this and newer versions of syslinux but no one really seemed to have a fix? Has anyone here had this problem and fixed it this way? Did you just roll back to an earlier version, or is there a newer better fix?
