Setting Up A PXE Install Server For Multiple Linux Distributions With Ubuntu Edgy Eft - Page 8

11 Add Mandriva 2007.0 Netboot

Next we download the Mandriva 2007.0 netboot files and put them in /var/lib/tftpboot/mandriva/2007.0 like this:

cd /var/lib/tftpboot
mkdir -p mandriva/2007.0/i386
cd mandriva/2007.0/i386
wget http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/Mandrivalinux/official/2007.0/i586/isolinux/alt0/vmlinuz
wget http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/Mandrivalinux/official/2007.0/i586/isolinux/alt0/all.rdz

(You can download the files from any other Mandriva mirror as well. Use one that is close to you.)

Then add a Mandriva 2007.0 LABEL stanza to /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default. The file should now look like this:

vi /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default

DISPLAY boot.txt

Add the new installation option to /var/lib/tftpboot/boot.txt:

vi /var/lib/tftpboot/boot.txt

When you installl Mandriva 2007.0 over the network, the installer will ask you about the installation method. Select HTTP and Official586 and enter/select gd.tuwien.ac.at as the host, /pub/linux/Mandrakelinux/official/2007.0/i586/ as the directory. Of course, you can use any other Mandriva mirror as well; use one that is close to you.
