Description Kinshuk Tripathi 2007-08-28 09:11:29 EDT
Description of problem: system-config-netboot is missing from RHEL5.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.0

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Installed RHEL5.0 on HP-DL385 machine, Installation went through successfully.
2.Installed syslinux , busybox-anaconda , tftp-server rpms for promotiong the 
host as PXE/diskless server.
3.searched for "system-config-netboot" (basically resposible for "pxeos" 
command) rpm under the RHEL5.0 DVD ,but couldn't able to find that.
Actual results: "system-config-netboot' rpm is responsible for the availability 
of the "pxeos" command , which is being used to create PXE/diskless boot server.

Expected results: system-config-packages should be included under the RHEL5.0 
media as its being bundled with its previous OS versions like RHEL4.0 .

Additional info: The system administration guide asks the user to install the 
system-config-netboot rpm from the RHEL5.0 media to enable the support of the 
command "pxeos" , but contrary to that media dosen't holds the respective 

Please let me know if some alternate package is available.
