So i am diving into the world of PXE servers as i got to older IBM xSeries 235 servers that dont do Cdrom booting, pretty darn sad considering they are from 2003 to which i have older dells that booted from DVD drives!
so i figure, lets try our a PXE server.
So i find the guide on CentOS's own site
So i followed that, all went great, until the service dhcpd restart part, it failed, thats because i didn't have DHCP installed since i have a UTM that handles that, sorry, guide forgot to mention anything about DHCP installation being needed for this.
So then i get DHCP installed, but it just wont start trying to run service dhcpd start, so then i find another guide that someone says works great
this guide sends you all over searching for links that aren't linked on their own site cause they couldn't be bothered to do it.
Why is there not a single guide, at least one i can find that literally goes step by step from a fresh CentOS install to end to get a working PXE server running, why do most linux guides assume you already know everything needed to set something up and skip steps entirely...
Has anyone here successfully got one up and running and can save me before i have 2 servers flying out windows..
