Default Setting Up A PXE Install Server For Multiple Linux Distributions With Ubuntu Edgy Eft

Hi, my name is Roberto and i'm writing to you cause of your "Setting Up A
PXE Install Server For Multiple Linux Distributions With Ubuntu Edgy Eft"
guide that i've found on Howto forge.
I have the same problem since Fedora Core 1, and i wasn't able to solve
it, even if i'm not completely a noob with linux.
The problem is this: after that the computer starting up receive the ip
address from the server (and the dhcp server is in fact perfectly working),
then pxelinux starts, declare its ip number, and then after "TFTP prefix:"
it starts searching for pxelinux.cfg/mac address, pxelinux.cfg/mac address
minus last symbol and so on till pxelinux.cfg/default and then "Could not
find kernel image linux". I can assure you the default file is under the
pxelinux.cfg directory, but it seems that it's not readable. I was trying to
chmod everything, 777, 444 and so on but with no results. Will you please
try to help me ?
Thanks in advance, Roberto.

P.S. in var/log/messages there's also this:

This is what I've found:
http://udpcast.linux.lu/pipermail/ud...il/000166.html
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/ce...ay/065112.html

These two pages suggest that it could be a hardware issue.
Have you tried with a different client?

Hi,

I have a working PXEboot install server (SunOS 5.10) with Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy and Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy distros. I can sucessfully install these distros even with automated kickstart config but I want to add an OpenBSD netboot kernel too.
Is it possible?
How should I edit pxelinux.cfg/default file to boot openbsd?
Yes I have a working openbsd netboot kernel but I have to manually edit the dhcpd.conf to boot the bsd kernel when a bsd install needed.


THX
