That's the way I'm network booting FreeBSD currently. Just provide your file pxelinux.0 as a boot image file to your DHCP server, and it should then work. However, for network booting Linux I would strongly recommend to not use the PXE booting mechanism but rather make your Linux kernel a tagged image file, and then use either netboot or etherboot to boot it. gero. -- Gero Kuhlmann Tollenbrink 18 Groote Gracht 33 firstname.lastname@example.org 30659 Hannover 26723 Emden email@example.com 04921/997561 =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: "Gero Kuhlmann" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
