Sorry to be late to the discussion but does the Compaq simply lack the
PXE firmware or just fail to boot under PXE?

Older PXE firmware (<0.99b iirc) need a couple of hacks on the server to
work. If this is the case, let me know and I'll point you to the
resolution.


I had a similar problem with some deskpros as clients that I brought with me to NCLS last year. If you can get a bios with a nonbuggy version of PXE, then here's what you have to do. Add the "-r blksize" option to tftpd at startup. On Fedora, this means adding that option to the tftp file in the xinetd folder. The other thing that I had to do was "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/no- ip-pmtu-disc". Make sure that runs every time the server starts up.

Those two things made the old deskpros boot just fine.
