Description Aaron McSorley 2003-02-13 21:16:36 UTC
Description of problem:

  There seems to be a limit of 5 on the number of entries I can have on
 the pxe boot menu, I need at least 7. Is there supposed to be a limit?
  
 It looks like this is in bstrapopts.cc ,but I'm not sure where.

 Or maybe, since I haven't found any documentation on the syntax of the menu
entries in the pxe.conf file, I've made a mistake.
 here is the menu part:

We are currently looking into switching to use pxelinux which is supplied with the 
syslinux package.  You should look into using this.
