Not sure if there is a DHCPD/PXE forum so I will ask here. I have been trying to get netboot to work (i.e. a machine with nothing on it but a NIC card, no linux, no operating system, whatever) boots up and receives a file from a dhcp server. This dhcp server gives it all the Linux stuff it needs so a full install can be done over the network. I actually got this working by turning my desktop into a DHCP server and placing the Linux images. My problem? Now everyone, especially with windows machines, is complaining that their machine keeps telling them "unknown network" and "no internet connection". Oops, my DHCP server was intercepting all the other DHCP requests normally for our actual router (192.168.5.1). I can get around this by unplugging my machine from the LAN and just having it on a very small network with only two IPS (my desktop DHCP server and the machine doing the boot). However, I would rather stay connected to the LAN especially if I have to go out over it to get an install package (like DDD). Can I somehow tell my desktop only to handle PXE requests and anything else should go to 192.168.5.1? Couple minor questions but I can save time asking here too: I can't figure out the correct "option" or keyword to assign host name via DHCP. Is there a way I can have a user choose whether to install 4.5 or 5.4 (CentOS) via boot? I put multiple choices into the C0 file but it ignored all but one.
