Typos/obsolete options

Postby garPikeX » 22 Oct 2010, 15:45

On the PXE Network Booting tutorial http://www.sysresccd.org/Sysresccd-manual-en_PXE_network_booting I found the following typos and obsolete options:

1) "The PXE boot process", point 6.:
...(rescuecd + rescuecd.igz)...

should read
...(rescuecd + initram.igz)...


2) "Steps to configure PXE on the server", second line:
Configure the network settings with ipconfig and route. Here is a typical example:

should read
Configure the network settings with ifconfig and route. Here is a typical example:


3) "Alternative methods: boot from NFS or NBD" last 2 lines before "About NBD":
nbdboot=ip:port: IP and Port of the NBD server that distributes a copy of sysrcd.dat
nfsboot=ip:/path: IP of the NFS v3 server and path to the directory that contains a copy of sysrcd.dat NFS v4 is not supported.

should read
netboot=ip:port: IP and Port of the NBD server that distributes a copy of sysrcd.dat
netboot=ip:/path: IP of the NFS v3 server and path to the directory that contains a copy of sysrcd.dat NFS v4 is not supported.


4) "About NFS", last line:
setkmap=uk ethx=192.168.52.2 nfsboot=192.168.52.1:/tftpboot gw=192.168.52.1

should read
setkmap=uk ethx=192.168.52.2 netboot=192.168.52.1:/tftpboot gw=192.168.52.1
