Hello list,

pxelinux is stuck in the following place:

PXELINUX 2.11 0x4321babe
My IP address seems to be AC1300FE
TFTP prefix:
Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/01-00-0c-29-49-49-c9
(waits here for a while before proceeding to...)
Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/AC1300FE

tcpdump shows me:

IP >  50 RRQ 

Which can't be right, because there's nothing at
I probably need to add the "next-server" option to the dhcpd.conf, but 
can't PXELINUX just use the DHCP server as the fileserver?

(And, I seem to recall that it worked "before" even without any 
next-server statement, but don't assume it.)
