Okay, next question: (and remember, this is in the name of helping stateless (and clueless) newbies everywhere, so bear with me =)

I have stateless linux installed according with the tutorial <http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/stateless/index.html>, and I'm attempting to do a PXE boot on a diskless machine. The PC is able to get an IP address, and then tries to get "pxelinux.0", and fails with a PXE-T01 and PXE-E3B. "pxelinux.0 isn't even located in the /tftpboot directory anywhere. so I add it to where dhcpd.conf says it should be, in "/tftpboot/linux-install/pxelinux.0", what's next? how do I set up /tftpboot/linux-install/pxelinux.cfg/*"?


    I think as long as you have tftp-server and syslinux installed it
should be there. Although, now that I look, I'm not sure how it gets
there - neither package owns it and pxelinux just installs it
in /usr/lib.

Cheers,
Mark.



Hmm, well, I just realized that when I ran stateless-clients to add a client, that somehow, it doesn't get added:
"
[root Server ~]# stateless-clients --configuration DemoSystem --add 00:11:11:4A:8A:21
[root Server ~]# stateless-clients -l
Clients:
[root fsix-Server ~]#
"
could this be related?

Okay, maybe it isn't related. Though, as someone mentioned earlier, the stateless-* utilities don't take long-form ("--") parameters. I got it working with "stateless-clients -c DemoSystem -a 00:11:11:4A:8A:21". Maybe the docs need to be updated (?).

Anyway, what is the format of the files in the pxelinux.cfg/* files supposed to be? what parameters need to be passed to the kernel, etc. and how is this stuff supposed to be generated?

Regards,
Carlos
