March 10th, 2010, 02:22 AM
Hi I am following this guide. http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up-a-pxe-install-server-on-ubuntu-9.10

I seem to be have problems with my boot image loading. I put memdisk in the tftpboot folder, I see at least it is trying to load the boot image. When I DO NOT put the append keeppxe I get the error "failed to load udp stack". If I do put append keeppxe I get "TFTP prefix". The boot images does not load either way. What else can I try?. The boot images is 6 megs and is a Dos based menu system.

Thanks again for any help you can offer me.

below is a copy of the menu.

- you have "menu default" for each menu item, that's probably not right

- you could try the installer, see how that works

- /var/log/syslog should contain details about what's happening, so you probably find some clues there
