The chapter on PXE reads for requirement: "A computer or a virtual machine that can boot SystemRescueCd
from a CD/USB/HDD to act as a PXE server".
Is it however possible to pick out kernel, initram and filesystem and load them with proper configuration of an already existing PXE linux steup?
More specifically I aldready have a pxelinux.0 based set up and dreamed of integrating with that. I gave it a fast try with the following config:
menu label Rescue system - s^ysresccd
append initrd=sysresccd/initram.igz dodhcp netboot=tftp://SERVER_IP:69/sysrcd.dat
and my TFTPROOT/sysresccd holds the files
which i picked out of the sysresccd version 1.5.5 image.
However, it just leaves me with a black screen with the message 'Loading sysresccd.' at the upper left and eventually a failure 'Boot failed: press a key to retry, or wait for reset ...'
Topics about the networking software (ssh, nfs, samba, ...). No questions about network drivers there.
