PXE boot a Live CD


Hi i am using PXE Linux to load a Live cd which contains the initrd file and that initrd file then mount a cloop file. However since the pxe server brings down the initrd file it forgets about the cloop file so it say it cant find it. I can probly add it to the initrd file but then the file will be a 100 megs which may take a while to come down. Does anyone know how to pxe boot a live cd?

Thanks!

I was able to get this working easy enough with Ubuntu. But I've not been able to get it working in Fedora.

I suspect we'd need to nfs the cloop/squashfs file somewhere and to a root=/dev/nfs rootfstype=nfs sort of thing but haven't worked it all out yet.

Did you every get anywhere with this?
