RE: [K12OSN] DOS Boot Image via LTSP TFTP?



Yes it is doable.  I currently use this setup on my terminal server.
All you do is make your 3com menu with 3com menu making utility.  Then
update your dhcpd.conf file to load the nameofmenu.sys file instead of
the pxelinux.0.  Note I do have my dhcp server on a different server.  I
also setup my terminals to lease a specific ip address and set terminal
to use specific file from terminal server.  Here is the section of my
dhcpd.conf file.

class "pxeclients" {
        match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) =
"PXEClient";
}
class "Etherboot" {
  match if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) =
"Etherboot";
 option vendor-encapsulated-options 3c:09:45:74:68:65:72:62:6f:6f:74:ff;
    filename = "/lts/vmlinuz-2.6.9-ltsp-3";
}

subnet 10.100.0.0 netmask 255.255.252.0 {
        range 10.100.1.0 10.100.3.254;
        option routers 10.100.0.1;
        next-server 10.100.0.96;
        option root-path "10.100.0.96:/opt/ltsp/i386";
        filename "hsmenu.mnu";
        # filename "STARTROM.COM";

host HS114PC22618 {
                fixed-address 10.100.0.178;
                hardware ethernet 00:02:55:30:7F:36;
                next-server 10.100.0.96;
                filename "/lts/pxe/pxelinux.0";
                }

Subject: [K12OSN] DOS Boot Image via LTSP TFTP?

Hello,

We dual boot K12ltsp / Win2K Pro.  We are receiving a shipment of 2nd 
hand XP boxes tomorrow so I need to create an dual boot k12 / XP image 
and deploy it.
I was looking at the 3com boot services CD that came with Ghost and it 
works like LTSP. So I was think since I already have a bootTP server 
maybe I could drop in a DOS image temporarily?

Does this seem doable?

Thanks,
John
