Prepare LAN

For this scenario we need two computer. One client (may be diskless or empty HDD), one server (Windows or better Linux). Both have to be connected to the local network.

The server must running a DHCP-server and a TFTP-server. The client need a pxe-ready network card. Most onboard network cars are capable.

The Linux way

I used dhcp3 and tftpd-hpa. Use youre favorite Linux and install them. I used Bind at home, but you can leave that out.

# Sample configuration file for ISC dhcpd for Debian
# $Id: dhcpd.conf,v 2002/05/21 00:07:44 peloy Exp $
ddns-update-style none;
# option definitions common to all supported networks...
option domain-name "home.local";
option domain-name-servers;
# If this DHCP server is the official DHCP server for the local
# network, the authoritative directive should be uncommented.
# Use this to send dhcp log messages to a different log file (you also
# have to hack syslog.conf to complete the redirection).
log-facility local7;
subnet netmask
        option domain-name-servers myserver.home.local;
        option domain-name "home.local";
        option routers;
        option broadcast-address;
        default-lease-time 28800; # 8 hrs
        max-lease-time 86400; # 1 day
        allow bootp;

        host myclient
                hardware ethernet 00:0F:EA:66:07:48;
                fixed-address myclient.home.local;
                filename "pxelinux.0";
                server-name "myserver.home.local";

The Windows way
