Hi, this is probably doable but I'm stumped. I have a M6000 mini-itx box with a 20Gb drive and no cdrom, monitor or keyboard, and a NetBSD box running NFS.
What I want to do is PXEboot the 6000 off the NetBSD box into FreeBSD (it has usb2 and firewire ports which are shaky at best under NetBSD). What I want really is to kick off a serial port install, and then install over NFS. I found http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/pxe/article.html which is 90% of what I need, but doesn't do the serial bit. The steps as I understand it would be: 6000 boots pxe, gets a path to pxeboot and a nfs root directory via dhcp, mounts the root, grabs a (install) kernel the install starts as normal. On NetBSD you just have an serial port aware pxeboot, how do you guys do it? -- If a listener nods his head when you're explaining your program, wake him up.
