Issues PXE booting Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop

I used livecd-iso-to-pxeboot to create PXE bootable versions of F14-Live 
for both x86_64 and i686.  The x86_64 version boots perfectly.  But, on 
the same machine, the i686 version fails at boot time with the following 
kernel error message:
initrd too large to handle, disabling initrd

It is then, obviously, unable to proceed further:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on

Does anybody have any idea as to what may be going wrong here?

Thanks for any help!
