Maybe it's worth noting this in the etherboot documentation. In the Etherboot documentation I actually recommend using a different directory for the tftp images, e.g. /tftpdir, because NFS exports tend to be put under /tftpboot. If you have root FS under /tftpboot, and it's exported with tftpd, someone could guess /tftpboot/clientname/etc/passwd and fetch it for cracking. >BTW, the ISC dhdpd comes with the recent RFC's for dhcp and bootp.

Among other things I do not wish to take on the added hassle of updating them when RFCs are superceded. And where does one stop? Should I throw in all the bootp RFCs? tftp, including the optional negotiated options? What about mtftp, another related standard? What's so hard about going to http://ietf.org/rfc.html? =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Ken Yap <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.
