Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I set up environment according to BareMetalProvisioningBestPractices document, I think everything should be ok. Now trying to plug in new virtual machine for PXE install Linux. But something is wrong, DHCP waits couple of seconds, and then I receive:
PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
I think, all services required are started.
dhcp.conf on boot/stage is:
# DHCP Server Configuration file.
# see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample
boot/stage is the same virtual machine, its ip 10.202.253.55.
I know nothing about router (anyway I set boot/stage ip), because in that subnet are three machines: OEM, boot stage and empty box.
New box has Linux installed, but in boot order I changed to boot from LAN first.
Structure of tftpboot directory on boot/stage is:
[root@prov tftpboot]# ls
bootFiles linux-install pxelinux.0 pxelinux.cfg
[root@prov tftpboot]# ls linux-install/
pxelinux.0 (I copied pxelinux.0 in /tftboot when was searching for solution)
[root@prov tftpboot]# ls pxelinux.cfg/
I tried to change filename variable in dhcp.conf to "linux-install/pxelinux.0" and to "/linux-install/pxelinux.0".
pxelinux.0 was taken from RHEL4, but I've got image and trying to boot RHEL5. Maybe there is something?
I am very new to Linux.
Whats wrong? What and how should I check else? Help needed!
