In the docs there is mention of ‘the easy way’ to install is to use a compact flash adaptor to preload the CF card with the software from a FreeBSD host with a CF adaptor. I don’t have that, but I do have a Windows 2000 laptop with a CF to PC Card adaptor.
It is possible somehow to just image the software into the CF (I guess the cf_tree/) by sticking the CF card in the laptop and using rawrite or something? Presumably, you need to create a FreeBSD filesystem on the card, and have put the kernel in a bootable location (I guess the CF equivalent MBR)?
Another question: I’m confused by Step 1 of the PXE boot process, where we are to configure the DHCP to supply “pxeboot” as the boot filename. Anyone have an example configuration of that?
