I need a Server which allows pxe boot Ubuntu Live CD to Client. I am going to make it using TFTP and DHCP. This two things are done. Also, using this article I am trying to boot standard Desktop ISO Image.

The difference is: I install memdisk and change path my way:

apt-get install syslinux-common
cp /usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk other/

and also in /other I put my iso. setting of tftp is:

OPTIONS="-l -s /var/lib/tftpboot"

DHCP is raised.


# DISPLAY boot.txt

label wde    #without the line tftp doesn't go (??)
 #   menu default
  #  menu label WDE Recovery
  #  root (hd0,0)
    menu label ISO boot
    kernel other/memdisk
    append iso initrd=other/ubuntu.iso --

tree of tftpboot:

├── boot.txt
├── debian
│   └── etch
│       └── i386
│           ├── initrd.gz
│           └── linux
├── ldlinux.c32
├── other
│   ├── memdisk
│   └── ubuntu.iso
├── pxelinux.0
└── pxelinux.cfg
    └── default

But it all does not go! I see now reason why.. Screen of the Client is in attach..

Any help will be greatly appreciate.. !

enter image description here

I tend to think that point is in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default but I have no idea how I should change it..


Got it done! Funny, but it needed just one line in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default before label wdemust be DEFAULT wde.

That's it!
