The following steps explain how to create the directory setup containing SLES 11 files for PXE installation.
Before You Begin
The PXE installation procedure requires the following items:
You must have already completed the network infrastructure setup to support PXE. See Configuring a Linux Server to Support PXE Installation.
A CD/DVD drive accessible to the PXE server.
SLES 11 distribution media set. This can be a set of CDs or a DVD.
# mkdir -p /home/pxeboot/sles11
You can use a different target directory from the /home/pxeboot/sles11/ directory shown. The examples in this procedure use this directory.
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom # cp -r /mnt/cdrom/* /home/pxeboot/sles11/ # umount /mnt/cdrom
Note - You must place the entire contents of SLES 11 in a single directory.
