Hi All,

Would someone mind posting a link to a guide to setting up a DHCP and TFTP server for PXE NFS booting?

The Boot Documentation page has a link to "network booting an EPIA M motherboard" at http://www.viaarena.com/Default.aspx?Pa ... ticleID=52 but I cant find it there...maybe its moved?

Thanks,

Wes

Hi Wes,

I still owe you a reply on the other post .... hopefully later today.

What you're looking for is at:
http://www.viaarena.com/nothing-but-net ... atID=3&P=1

You should also look at:
http://www.linux-mag.com/id/473/

And then for general background, see:
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Network-boot-HOWTO/index.html
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DHCP/index.html see section 4

Good luck!

Joe Henley

Thanks Joe, that helped a lot..... I finally got my system booting again, using nfs.

I also wanted to share this guide for anyone else looking at this post, which helped me a lot... seemed to be a nice, simple guide to setting up the servers and PXElinux. Particularly where files need to be on your tftpboot directory.

It is out of date, so dont follow it exactly step by step, but along the other guides it really helped me get PXE to at least boot up
