Thanks, Net147, those edits helped me remove the last issues I had with my diskless setup. I moved your DHCP workaround to the top of the list, that is a very good script you have. --Geekner

dnsmasq and pxe boot

I sucessful booted a VirtualBox machine without the three dhcp-option-force parameter in dnsmasq.conf. The configfile is searched along a path according to the syslinux wiki, so it it is not neccessary.

DHCP/Network Daemon Workaround

Changed to a more simple fix (derived from Net147's script) making use of confd to keep it closer to vanilla. Also note if you want to change it back to the old way that the -p option is not actually required as it is implied by -s. --Mikep 18:29, 9 January 2010 (EST)


It seems like the thing to do these days is NBD instead of NFS. Any interest in changing the article or amending it with an NBD option? (I would do it, not asking anyone else to.) -- Piezoelectric 21:00, 10 April 2010 (EDT)

YES! I'd like to see this, a RO NBD root could be a lot faster. --VitaminJ 10:46, 6 March 2011 (EST)

Wireless boot

"Hardware Considerations: [..] Wireless will not work, with exception of a wireless-to-ethernet external bridge."

Not entirely true! See --Huuhaa 15:09, 20 January 2011 (EST)
