* Network Booting with dnsmasq - Using dnsmasq for DHCP, TFTP and PXE booting on various clients

  • NetBSD - Configuring dnsmasq to netboot NetBSD (x86, m68k)
  • Linux - Netbooting x86 Linux (Ubuntu, Mint) using dnsmasq
  • Solaris - Supporting network installation of Solaris on Sparc using dnsmasq
