Description todd 1999-11-09 19:17:42 UTC
The linux.0 pxe bootstrap for booting linux from
a pxe server is inoperative as delivered on the
6.1 RPM and SRPM CDs. Using misc/src/trees/boot/vmlinuz
for linux.1 and misc/src/trees/initrd-network.img for

It hangs in prepare.c of the pxe/linux-nmp code.

Todd, you haven't mentioned this again so I'm assuming this was a problem on
