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

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.
