No, I didn't I got distracted and started a new project, then a new project. But I will get back at it. I'm trying to unpackage the contents of the iso for a pxe server project.

what about rsync?
did you try using rsync?

I dont know much about pxe though...

are you in a X desktop when doing this?

isomaster can mount and copy iso too, without being root.

Using both command line and GUI when trying to unpack it. It first happened on my server and I couldn't copy and paste the error, but now I realize I could have redirected the error and then emailed it to myself but even on a GUI I couldn't get it to work.
What do you mean use rsync? I thought it was just a backup program? I'm trying make a pxe server cause a "client" has a laptop that doesn't have a functioning DVD drive and my flashsticks don't work for some reason, says the os is missing. So I found it can boot off the network. It's an old hp laptop, I can't remember the model or the hardware, but I'm sure it's x86.

your flashsticks are fat32 syslinux or ext2/3 with grub?
if grub, try editing menu.lst so usb boots as first hd, (hd0,0)

I know pmagic has a good pxe setup, as does Slax

did you read this too?

http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/PXELINUX

and, IF you could boot off USB, would that work best?
did you try plop bootmanager?

OH
Happy Veterans's Day Predatorian
Thank you for your Service bro and stay out of trouble

yeah, if i could boot off the flashstick that would be the best idea right now just cause its faster, but i would like to get this PXE server going on my VM. im currently in the airport, so im trying to get my server updated, and get a NON-corrupt iso of the alternate installer for ubuntu.
for that PXELinux, so i need to download a package like when i download syslinux?

Howdy, yea it was a corrupt copy of the cd. Niw I got the pxe server running, but ubuntu says I need a properly configured kickstart file. I'm not sure if I need to start a new thread, but I just need a pointer or direction to what I need to know how to configure a ks.cfg file for ubuntu server 9.04. Thanks peeps. And thanks linus76, I'll get back to the multiboot grub flash stick. .
