Question PXE and config file


Hi,

I want to build an PXE server so that I can install linux distro's with eas

But I need to install a couple of different servers, and if the servers fail I need to reinstall them by PXE.

So I would like to know if it is possible to make some config file, xml or something... that config file should contain the install values, like the server ip address, package information, partition scheme, etc.

Is it possible to do this with a PXE server?

thnx

To be able to choose different boot images look at PXELINUX ("Can I send information to PXELINUX via special options in the DHCP response?"). Dunno if its needed but in any case here's Remote Network Boot via PXE which mentions Pxelinux and has a good list of references as well.
