Each PXE server supports a specific version of Linux. You can configure PXE servers for Red Hat 4, Red Hat 5, SUSE 10, and SUSE 11.
Each PXE server has a name, or label, which you assign when you create the PXE image. When you want to install the corresponding version of Linux on a system that is connected to the same network, you can boot it and select the PXE image label from the list of boot devices.
Note - Your server supports RHEL 4.8, RHEL 5.3, SLES10 SP2, and SLES 11.
The system where you configure the PXE server must be running the same brand of Linux (SUSE or Red Hat); however, it does not need to run the same version. For example, you can install two PXE servers on a system running SUSE 10; one for SUSE 10 and another for SUSE 11. However, you cannot install a PXE server for Red Hat Linux on a system running SUSE Linux. Nor can you install a PXE server for SUSE Linux on a system running Red Hat Linux.
