Update documentation to point to grub-mknetdir instead.

Hi.

I tried pxeboot with grub-2.00.

section "7 Booting GRUB from the networkd" in grub.texi says:
" To generate a PXE boot image, run:
grub-mkimage --format=i386-pc-pxe --output=grub.pxe --prefix='(pxe)/boot/grub' pxe pxecmd"

I tried this command, however, the image generated with this command does not work.

- 'pxecmd.img' does not exist.
- Probably, "--prefix='/boot/grub'" is right at current GRUB.

Therefore, this command line should be:
grub-mkimage --format=i386-pc-pxe --output=grub.pxe --prefix='/boot/grub' pxe

Thanks.
