    Use the floppy image to get the CD Drive going. Then once you have access to the CD, you can carry on as normal.

    Well I was thinking of trying to get it to PXE boot the ISO on the CD so that it starts the PING program? Any ideas on achieving this?

    I don't think you can PXE boot ISO's but it's definitely possible to PXE boot DOS bootdisks.

    I've created a bootable linux CD from an ISO and I'd like to use that as a PXE boot option. Sorry I didn't make myself very clear .

    our tftpserver has this section /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg

    Code:
    LABEL WindowsBootDisk
    	MENU HIDE
    	MENU LABEL ^MS DOS 6.22
            KERNEL memdisk
            APPEND initrd=windows/Dos6.22.img
    for PXE booting floppies, but like I really don't think it can be done with ISO's

    It wouldn't be done with ISOs just what was on the cd after the ISO was burned to it. I'm using Ghost Solution Suite as the PXE server just wondered if anyone knew how to set this one up?

    Wes,

    There is a certain PXE-based program that you might be thinking of buying that could boot Linux directly into a RAM disk.

    Do you have to boot the Linux ISO, or is it simply an environment to run a (PING?) program?
