If so, would you say how you did it, please.
I tried, but gave up in the end and used a USB stick instead.
But I'd be very interested to know how to do it, for the future.
I do this all the time. I wrote a tutorial on setting up a PXE server on
Fedora, but it works just the same on CentOS 6 machines. In it, I show
how to add CentOS 5 and Fedora as install candidates. I don't mention
CentOS 6 directly, but it can be added exactly the same as the others.
Just to thank you for your tutorial,
which is very informative.
If I had to criticize it, I would say that it is _too_ informative.
Maybe you could consider a parallel Quick Guide,
just listing the actions to take, 1,2,3,...
But as far as I can see, I followed the strategy you suggest,
which I've used for many versions of Fedora,
as well as CentOS-5.6.
But it didn't work for CentOS-6.0.
The machine booted fine, but hung (IIRC) at
"waiting for hardware to initialize..."
Unfortunately I didn't take proper notes of what I tried;
as I mentioned, I installed from a USB stick in the end.
But I thought afterwards I'd ask if anyone had actually succeeded
in installing CentOS-6.0 by PXEboot.
Someone asked why I didn't send my query to the CentOS mailing list.
The answer is that I meant to, but clicked on the wrong line ...
In other words, a slip of the mouse.
I could invent the excuse that I was using a Fedora machine
as PXE server, which is true but irrelevant.
