Hi Rasmus,
Thank you for the advice. I'm almost there now. Question: how does the system tell from the menu.lst where the tftp server is? Does it automatically find it or is that specified by the DHCP server?
Cheers,
Amanda

Oh, that's 130.225.103.33. The other one is my DHCP-server. I presume
you get the idea anyway.

Best regards,

Rasmus
