+:B~ PXEbooting a netinstall image
+
+1~pxebooting-a-netinstall-image PXEbooting a netinstall image
+
+This chapter contains a cursory overview of how to PXE boot a pre-built Debian Live image.
+
+Download the tarball containing the netinstall pre-built image.  Configure DHCP, TFTP, and NFS servers as described in the section { Building a Netboot Image }http://live.debian.net/manual/en/html/the-basics.html.  The #{tftpboot/}# directory contains example TFTP configuration files and the files needed to boot with TFTP.  The #{debian-live/}# directory contains everything else and should be shared with NFS.
+
+The pxelinux.0 and pxelinux.cfg files in the root directory served by your TFTP server may be may be symlinks pointing to the content of the #{tftpboot/}# directory.
+
+Alter #{tftpboot/debian-live/i386/boot-screens/live.cfg}# boot loader config file sot that #{nfsroot}# kernel parameter contains the IP number of your NFS server and the appropriate path to the exported #{debian-live/}# directory.
+
+The TFTP server is responsible for delivering the boot loader and the files necessary to display the boot loader menu.  If a menu appears your TFTP server is working properly.  Note that it can take some seconds to respond after choice of a menu item.  If you get the message "connect: Connection timed out" during the Linux boot sequence this is an indication of a problem with NFS.
