I'm stuck. After wrangling settings and network issues for a few days, I've finally gotten an 'encouraging' error message in Serva 3.0.0 that shows I've made some progress:

[08/03 12:34:55.779] DHCP Inf: Address 192.168.2.1 is being ACKED
[08/03 12:34:55.785] TFTP Inf: Read file <pxeboot>. Mode octet
[08/03 12:34:55.786] TFTP Err: File <pxeboot> : error 2 in CreateFile; The system cannot find the file specified.
[08/03 12:34:57.846] TFTP Inf: Read file <pxeboot>. Mode octet
[08/03 12:34:57.846] TFTP Err: File <pxeboot> : error 2 in CreateFile; The system cannot find the file specified.
[08/03 12:35:01.816] TFTP Inf: Read file <pxeboot>. Mode octet
[08/03 12:35:01.831] TFTP Err: File <pxeboot> : error 2 in CreateFile; The system cannot find the file specified.

(From my logs)

I believe its trying to tell me that I've indicated the wrong boot file for SL, but I'm not sure. I've tried what the documentation indicates, 'pxelinux.0' and 'pxeboot'.

I'm newer than new at this, so, I'm lost... http://www.madjacksports.com/forum/images/smilies/facepalm.gif

Serva is an automated PXE server; you should not manually set the NBP.
