Description W Agtail 2005-08-30 09:22:01 EDT

Would it be possilble to add a new option to pxeos?
I would like to point to a DVD iso image stored on disk, e.g:

> pxeos -a -i "FC4" -p NFS -D 0 -s -L \
/scratch/ISOs/Linux/FC4/i386/FC4-i386-DVD.iso fc4

You must enter directory of the Operating System Software
This directory must include the images/pxeboot directories
Error Mounting: mount: Not a directory

This would be a convenient way to copy out the images/pxeboot files from the ISO

Would also fit nicely with the NFS Kickstart installs process that allows one to
install from an ISO.

many thanks

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
