After trying to piece together vesamenu.c32 and pxelinux.0 from
different distros, etc, I just tried to recompile the most recent
syslinux release and it worked!  My nice vesamenu comes up and then goes
away when it boots a menu option.  I'm going to work on putting a
background image in there as well.  This way I can default k12linux,
boot windows locally if installed, boot memtest, or under and admin menu
boot RIP Linux which gives me access to gparted, firefox, cdburner
software (I tested this from it yesterday!), and even a dvd player.


I now know how the whole PXE deal works (the client grabs the pxelinux.0
file, which is an executable program that runs the whole pxelinux.cfg
,etc show).  Once I got all those files in sync release wise, they


Once I move to k12linux, I'll try to post some details and files on how
to do this.  Looks cool.


Thanks for the help!
