Without any problem.
I use it this way, too.

All is in example dnsmasq.conf, and you'll need:
tftp-root=/...		# readable by user dnsmasq is running
tftp-secure		# I set it
dhcp-boot=pxelinux.0	# because I use PXE

All kernel boot options are set in $tftp-root/pxelinux.cfg/default
(syslinux package provides all other needed stuff).
