Description of problem:
Customer upgrading from 5.1.1 to 5.3.0 Satellite saw their entire /tftpboot directory structure changed and PXE no longer working. They see this as an undocumented change.
This is most likely due to cobbler setting up PXE, which interfered/overwrite existing setup. Please include a note in the Release Notes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade a pre-5.3.0 satellite with PXE already setup in /tftpboot to 5.3.0 (or installing 5.3.0 on a non-satellite with /tftpboot set up will probably have same effect.)
2. Try PXE boot and watch it fail, look at altered structure in /tftpboot.
3. Look at Satellite 5.3.0 release notes.
The Satellite 5.3.0 release notes mentions cobbler but not that cobbler will overwrite existing /tftpboot/.
Add note to Satellite 5.3.0 release notes that cobbler will overwrite existing /tftpboot/, and if user intends to keep running PXE on their 5.3.0 satellite, change the directory to elsewhere before upgrading/installing.

NeedInfo. As best as I can tell there has been no update of the Release Notes since:
I would say that new docs need to be built, and we need to repackage it into a new rhn-i18n-release-notes package and align it to:
Release Pending. Checked on rlx-3-10.rhndev.redhat.com with:
