At our office we have built a PXE network install machine, using the guide here - http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...de/ch-pxe.html
We used this method to install Fedora Core 4.
It worked fine until we got a new range of motherboards with a in-built via-rhineII network card, the original Fedora Core 4 kernel (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) doesn't support the network card so it unable to pick up the NFS mount (with the FC4 DVD files on).
The most recent Fedora Core 4 kernel (2.6.17) does support the card, so it is possible to install FC4 via DVD then copy (via CD) the latest kernel RPM
- this is however very fiddly.
Is it possible to update the initrd.img and vzlinuz used by the PXE boot to the 2.16.17 kernel ?
- or is it possible to use the LAN driver from here - http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx...0&SubCatID=124
in conjuction with the original kernel (2.6.11) for the pxe install ??
Also - I have managed to use the latest Fedora 4 kernel - 2.6.17 to use as a diskless environment as outlined here - http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...-diskless.html
- It works fine (for diskless)
I just need to know how to update the network-install kernel?
