Use an OS X Mac to install OSs on Intel machines
Authored by: ctopfel on Dec 16, '05 07:41:53AM

Sounds very interesting, but I have a question:

what is the pxeboot file? where can i get this one?
Or if I want to install maybe a SUSE linux, just put the DVD Image into /private/tftp ?

thanks for the great hint

SUSE via pxe looks fine too, google is your friend, for example:

Both files are in the directory /pub/OpenBSD/3.8/i386 on ftp.openbsd.org

pxeboot is the remote boot command that a.o. loads the remote kernel

The bsd.rd file is a ramdisk with the kernel and utilities.

I've been looking for this solution for some time already, to help me boot an HP E-PC without CD-ROM. Thanks for your hint! It will help me a bit further.
