Hi, I have downloaded TFTPD32 so that I can install Ubuntu Server 10.10 edition onto an old Gateway Solo 5300 using Network Boot since its cd drive doesn't work and its usb drive works only after logging in. However, it has no OS now, and I plan to install this new OS.

The problem is that an error occurs when I try to boot , saying "A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host"
How can I fix this?
Your help will be most appreciated,
Tom
