I was trying to use Red hat 9 as the server for a thin client (HDS ViewStation). The diskless client uses the BOOTP protocol to get its IP address and software image from the Linux server.
From what I can tell BOOPT has become a part of DHCP, but the dhcpd or dhcpd.config man page does not specify how to input the MAC address, Ip and the image path into the config file for client to read. Could any one point me to a documentation on this?
I also reinstalled DHCP and installed a BOOTP RPM from Red Hat 5, but no bootp file or folder can be found after installation. Can you actually mix RPM from different versions of Red hat?
