:Yes. I also using PXE for diskless operation.

    BOOTP is not mutually exclusive to PXE.  PXE is just a way to
    load the kernel up.  Once the kernel is running, it uses
    BOOTP to get its NFS mounts, swap, etc...


    P.S. To anyone who wants to cleanup the rc.diskless files,
    please be my guest!  I wrote them originally and they worked
    'ok', but then some people mangled them and ever since they
    haven't worked right.  I don't have time to clean them up
    myself.  They could use a complete rewriting, IMHO.
