    pxe boot file

    Does any one know of a PXE boot file that exists that just boots either from first HD or just next bios order.

    ie a dummy one.

    you can chainload using chain.32
    Comboot/chain.c32 - Syslinux Wiki

    It's included in syslinux:

    rpm -ql syslinux | grep chain
    /usr/share/syslinux/chain.c32


    basically, I think you need to edit your /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default to look something like:
    Code:
     LABEL Local Disk
               kernel chain.c32
               append hd0
               MENU DEFAULT
               MENU LABEL Boot from hard disk
               TEXT HELP
                     Boot from the local hard drive.
       
               ENDTEXT
    Of course, you could add an option for network booting various kernels and protect them via a password.
