DOS - netboot (PXE booting) from Linux TFTP server
I have a Linux based TFTP server and I am trying to make a DOS image (PXE image) that can Install over the network.

Any help or suggestion with be appreciated.

Any small netboot os could be used to format and copy files. The problem might be trying to do a sys to the drive. There is a way to force how the hidden files are installed but it gets tricky.

We take an image of systems using dd with g4u. As long as you go to a similar size disk or larger it is OK. You can pxe any gparted or partimage or g4u.

Look at Barts network boot floppy. I have sent it over tftp.

I don't think you can directly netboot dos and install it. Has been a long time since I played with it. For some reason I think it is the way real mode or long integer or something fails.

The advantage for gpxe is different media than tftp.
