Since there are a lot of situations where TFTPD32 can be used to boot from LAN, I tought it would be a good idea to start here a small list of links pointing to quick guides showing how to use PXE and TFTPD32.

Some links might have grown outdated, if you know better pages - please post them on this topic too.. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I looked at a lot of these guides to set up my TFTP server for the first time, but I didn't find any of them to be 100% complete. Sure there were useful things in each one, but I did not feel any of them to be a sit down, here's all the steps to do it walkthrough. So I made one.

This guide will hopefully show anyone how to take a blank XP box, and end up with a fully functioning TFTPD32 based server. I did extend it a little bit to include how to slipstream a lot of XP drivers into the install, as well as sample files to make it fully unattended. This is the exact method I used to create a server that rolls out completely unattended installs, including drivers, and with use of the $OEM$ folder, automate complete applications and registry tweaks. With enough time, you can customize it to have a one or two keystroke complete isntall, without using ghost.

This is the first guide I've ever written. Any input would be nice.
