I just started working on PXE network booting and successfully configured servers(DHCP and TFTP) and a client. Everything is working well.

DHCP and TFTP servers are configured on Fedora 13 and OS that boots on network is also a stripped down version of Fedora 13.

Following is a part of menu file

label linux0

menu label Fedora 13 (Minimal)

kernel fc/vmlinuz0

APPEND rootflags=loop initrd=fc/initrd0.img root=live:/myfc13.iso rootfstype=iso9660 rw

liveimg quiet selinux=0 rhgb rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD noiswmd blacklist nouveau

Client successfully displays the menu and boot the OS.

Both the following files were downloaded from tftp server to client



What i now wanted is to download some other files(some text files) from the tftp server to client, so is this possible and how?

Any suggestion?

NOTE: I can add the files in the kernel image but this is the last solution.

I don't believe there's anything built-in for that. Modify either the initrd or the install to pull down the files after the system has started.

The operating system that PXE boots up. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Sep 27 '10 at 7:45
