Hi,

I'd like to add a menu entry to GRUB2 on my local hard disk so I can boot a specific PXE server on my LAN.

I know I can netboot specific PXE servers if I use the syslinux package by adding eg.

Code:

COM32 pxechn.c32
    APPEND 10.215.144.60::/BStrap/x86pc/BStrap.0 -W -o 43.x=06:01:0B:08:07:AA:AA:01:0A:D7:90:3C:00


I haven't tried this yet but I suppose I could create a GRUB2 menu entry to load a syslinux menu on the same local hard drive and from there do pxe chaining by loading pxechn.c32. Is this possible? How?

A better solution would be to be able to do it directly from GRUB2 on my hard disk. What GRUB2 menu entry can I create in order to PXE boot from a specific IP address as show in the code above?
That is if GRUB2 supports it.

Thanks,

Vieri
