I have a poweredge 750 and I am trying to install an OS on it. What do I need to do in order to perform a network install? All my server has is a floppy disk drive.

I am installing Windows Server 2003 Std. I followed all of those steps. DHCP/AD/DNS is all set up. For some reason when I press F12 to get the PXE it seems to timeout during the part where it searches for a DHCP. After it times out, I get an error stating no boot filename received.

Then how about responding to my last suggestion?  Have you run down that entire troubleshooting list?  What was the outcome?
