Description Alan Cox 2002-10-02 18:39:25 UTC
PXE requires you add entries to /etc/services. It gets the names wrong in the
documentation for the mtftp ones. It gives inetd.conf not xinetd.d/ information
on setting up the server parts too.

At the least I'd expect the pxe ports to be in our default /etc/services and the
needed xinetd.d entries to automatically be added, even if started with disable=yes.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-11 15:04:49 UTC
We are dropping support for pxe in the RHEL release and will drop it from future 
Red Hat Linux release.  
We are recommending that you use dhcp/pxelinux for X86 platforms.
