Re: [K12OSN] Terminal setup help saga



Alan,

You are getting much closer.  You now have a PXE bootrom,
which should work.  If you are using k12ltsp, it should 
automatically work for you, I think Eric has pre-configured
the PXE stuff to work.

Otherwise, take a look on the ltsp.org website for a howto
about using PXE.
