dnsmasq.conf
 
Ok ok gonna kill my server if i cant get this working with stupid dnsmasq software

im trying to boot a system with no harddrive and boots from the network it sees the file pxelinux.0 but then errors trying to transfer the file im not sure whats the issue here my permissions for my /var/tftpdboot are drwx-r--r so whats the deal here im thinking its somethig wrong with dnsmasq or tftpd server

by the way dnsmasq is not real clear on what it wants for information it basicly is



Code:

dhcp-boot=/var/tftpboot/pxelinux.0,192.168.0.1,192.168.0.103
the way that i understand this is that the first ip needed is the boothost and the second is the client your trying to boot. So where do you put in mac information or whatnot ??

im really confused i can provide a copy of the tftpd if anyone needs it :_(

it's really simple actually, and dnsmasq is a superb little program to save you from the horrors of BIND. the dhcp-boot option provides filename relative to the tftpd path. in your xinetd.d/tftpd file you should have somethign like "server_args = -s /var/tftpboot" and so your pxe-boot path would be from that point on, i.e "/pxelinux.0" only
