1How to install the PXE menu tools
2=================================
3
4The files for the PXE menus are in the pxemenu/ directory.
5
6We recommend *manual* installation of the PXE menu files to your TFTP server's
7file directory (usually /tftpboot) so that your customized files in /tftpboot
8do not get overwritten by accident.
9
101. Copy the SYSLINUX files
11--------------------------
12
13These files are from the SYSLINUX package and should preferentially be in the
14/tftpboot directory, although you can also put them in subdirectories:
15
16   cp pxemenu/pxelinux.0 /tftpboot
17   cp pxemenu/memdisk /tftpboot
18   cp pxemenu/com32/menu.c32 /tftpboot
19   cp pxemenu/com32/chain.c32 /tftpboot
20
21There are a number of other *.c32 utilities in pxemenu/com32/ which you
22may want to try out by copying them to the PXE menu system.
23
242. Copy the PXE menu files
25--------------------------
26
27Set up the PXE menu:
28
29   cp pxemenu/pxelinux.cfg/default.menu /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default.menu
30
31You should edit default.menu if necessary to include only those menu items
32that you want to provide in your environment.
33
34It is highly recommended to let default.menu become your default boot method.
35You enable this by:
36
37   cd /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg
38   ln -s default.menu default
39
403. Copy the menu item directories
41---------------------------------
42
43For the menu items that you have enabled in default.menu, copy the required
44example subdirectories to /tftpboot, for example:
45
46   cp -rp pxemenu/Tools /tftpboot
47   cp -rp pxemenu/ghost /tftpboot
48   cp -rp pxemenu/CentOS-5.0 /tftpboot
49   cp -rp pxemenu/mysystem /tftpboot
50
51You may then edit the *.conf files in these directories to reflect your configuration.
52Also, you should install from other sources the requisite disk images that you have
53configured (comments are in the *.conf files).
