I think that the instructions are telling pxelinux.0 to boot then go to
the local net.

No, the next-server directive gives the host name of the server running
tftp. That is where the pxelinux.0 file is hosted

Per is living on the edge by using .local as a domain, which is really a
reserved name for zeroconf and shouldn't be used outside such an
environment. Use whatever the hostname of your tftp server is

How do I find the address of the local net?

Then I think that it is telling it to go to the host server, how do I
exactly find the mac and ip addresses for it on the local net?

The host directive is a static IP handed out by the dhcp server to the
machine with a network card with that ethernet address. It is not the
server but the machine being installed
