PXELinux


Hi,

I'm trying to set up PXElinux on my linux machine using Redhat 9.
Everything works fine but when a target machine tries to boot, the "DISPLAY message" never shows up. Linux will boot and load image.img but I need to display a message first.

message.txt is in the same directory as the default file. I tried using the full path as well and that didn't work.

Here is my default file:

------default file-------
serial 0 9600 0
DEFAULT image
TIMEOUT 300
PROMPT 1
DISPLAY message.txt
LABEL local
localboot 0
LABEL image
kernel bzImage
append console=ttyS0,9600 rw initrd=image.img root=/dev/ram0


Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dan

Thanks all,

Solved my problem, I put the message file int he wrong directory. It needs to be in the same directory as the binary.
