Description of problem:
Booting DOS disks is working fine using PXE, but only up to Windows 98.
Booting Windows ME (Text mode boot disk) or Windows XP (Emergency boot disk)
does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a PXE server
2. create an image of a Windows XP emergency boot diskette
3. boot the image from LAN
Actual Results: System does not boot. After a message saying: "Starting
Emergency Boot disk" (or similar) the system hangs.
Expected Results: The system should boot Windows XP emergency disk (Windows
Me Text mode)
Sorry, you'll have to talk to the people in Redmond for Windows support. (The PXE in RH
is only supported for Linux booting, anything more is just luck...)
