Re: [K12OSN] How can this be done?



Hi Lewis :

Doesn't matter what OS your DHCP is runing on the codes 6/17/28/66/67 are always the same.
I did this on both a Linux and Novell based system before.


What's your platform maybe I can give you an hint as to were to look.
On linux you can hack the dhcpd.conf file with vi :-)

If you installed K12LTSP than currently part of your dhcpd looks like
option subnet-mask            255.255.255.0;
option broadcast-address      192.168.10.255;
option routers                192.168.10.4;
option domain-name-servers    192.168.10.2;
option domain-name            "ltsp";
option root-path              "192.168.10.1:/opt/ltsp/i386";
option option-128 code 128 = string;
option option-129 code 129 = text;

So those options are already there
       6    Domain Name Server    192.168.10.2
       17    Root Path        192.168.10.1:/opt/ltsp/i386
       28    Broadcast Address    192.168.10.255

So you only need
       66    TFTP Server Name    192.168.10.1
       67    Boot File Name        /lts/vmlinuz.ltsp

and I think that is done by adding the following 2 lines :

option tftp-server-name "192.168.10.1";
option boot-file-name ="/lts/vmlinuz.ltsp"
