Thanks for the reply!
There are the few points I had no answer:
- how do you tell where is the initrd image? - I found at last that
pxelinux.0 reads it from the kernel 'append' line, what is far to be obvious.
- how do I tell it to get kernel IP configuration from the initial dhcp
configuration, i.e. equivalent to 'ip=rom' with mknbi-linux?
- some equivalent to 'vga=extended' on lilo?
- boot menus - nice feature, but how to configure that? few examples?
- and everything else of how to use this really nice loader.
I managed for now to more or less install it and may wait a bit for config
options/examples. so no need to lose time to reply this letter, but everyone
will profit if you put some config guide on web.
