Thanks for this article. I have found that the service file needs `Requires` instead of `Wants`. [[User:Rizsotto|Rizsotto]] ([[User talk:Rizsotto|talk]]) 18:38, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

pxeboot installs are in fact the only area I've ever found otherwise superb Arch documentation to be lacking. Even some sort of cross-correlation between how it's done with dnsmasq and equivalent procedures with dhcp/tftp would be helpful, if that's possible.

Use for PXE

It would be great if there was a little more on using dhcpd with a tftp server to enable pxe network installs. I realise there's a link here to the Arch Wiki PXE page, but that page only talks about dnsmasq, not dhcpd+tftpd. pxeboot installs are in fact the only area I've ever found otherwise superb Arch documentation to be lacking. Even some sort of cross-correlation between how it's done with dnsmasq and equivalent procedures with dhcp/tftp would be helpful, if that's possible.
