    64 == Setup ==
    65  4) As you can see '/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/' is the default directory. If
    66     you placed the config files somewhere else you can add the
    67     '-d/--directory' option, eg:
     64== Note ==
     65As you can see '/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/' is the default directory. If you placed the config files somewhere else you can add the ''-d/--directory'' option, eg:
     66{{{
    6867       pxeconfigd stream  tcp nowait  root.sys /usr/sbin/tcpd \
    69         /usr/sara/sbin/pxeconfigd -d /<some>/<other>/<place>
    70 
    71 If the daemon works and you want to install/reinstall a node, a link
    72 must be placed in the '/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg' directory. This can
    73 be done with the 'pxeconfig' utility. This utility will ask some
    74 questions and will make the links for you. The utility requires the following
    75 
    76 setup:
    77   1) All the pxe configuration files must start with the keyword 'default.'
    78      N.B.: yes, the dot after 'default' is part and parcel of the keyword!
    79      In this distribution two examples are included. Pxeconfig lets the
    80      user decide which 'default.' config file to use.
    81 
    82   2) If default is a symbolic link to for example default.harddisk, then
    83      default.harddisk is not included in the list where the user can
    84      choose from.
    85 
    86   3) You can give a command line switch to specify where the
    87      pxe config files reside:
    88         pxeconfig -d /<some>/<other>/<place>
    89 
    90 The last utility is 'hexls'. This utility will display the hex pxe config
    91 file with the corresponding ip-addresses.
    92 
    93 To activate this on a client you must add the following line to the 'master'
    94 script of the node. It will remove the pxe config file for the node
    95 from the pxe bootserver. I personally place the line just before the umount
    96 commands. See below which command to use for which systemimager version.
    97 Telnet is not included in the 3.X versions.
    98    # Remove the <hex_ipaddr> file from the pxelinux.cfg directory.
    99    # So the client will boot from disk
    100    #
    101    3.X)  chroot /a telnet $IMAGESERVER 6611
    102    2.X)  telnet $IMAGESERVER 6611
