[Arglh...] netinst on a Dell pe1650 whith PXE

Hi dear fellows,

I've found on Matt Domsh's page [1] a netinst suitable for a Dell pe1650

Unfortunatly I'm not very aware with linux net booting.
At this point, DHCP and TFTP work fine.
I'm curently trying PXE to boot the pe1650. But I don't know how to organise
the tftp root directory, an I do not know which options are necessary in the
xxxx config file in order to boot the kernel, the one with the booting
machine's hex IP adress. Here are some details about my confs.

inetd.conf :
   tftp           dgram   udp     wait    root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -r blksize

Now what I get on the pe1650 screen:

   PXELINUX Version: 1.75-1 (Debian, 2002-06-20) blahblah
   UNDI data segment at: 00091530
   UNDI data segment size: B440
   UNDI code segment at: 0009C970
   UNDI code segment size: 2E00
   PXE entry point found (we hope) at 9C97:0106
   TFTP prefix: /tftpboot/
   Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/C0A80166
   Could not find kernel image: linux
   boot: _

I tryed first directly with the .iso file, then I tried mounting it in a


my pxelinux.cfg/C0A80166 is rather simple as I do not yet understand how to
populate it :

   LABEL pe1650
     KERNEL vmlinuz
     APPEND initrd=bootbf2.4.19-ac4/boot/rescue.bin

So if someone could help me, it would be great !!!

Many thanks, Alexis
