    1313The initrd and kernel file come rom the first bootable media
    14 created by mondoarchive.
    15 If you mount it you should find what you need under /images
    16 with a name like mindi-bootroot.8192.img
    17 initrd is mindi.rdz and kernel is vmlinuz
     14created by mondoarchive. To get them, please issue:

    19 Thus the PXE ROM will boot mondo's kernel and mondo's initrd in memory and will append all the right configuration options (as you find in syslinux.cfg on the mindi's floppy image) to which you need to add the keyword pxe.
     16# mount /path/to/mondorescue-1.iso /mnt/cdrom -o loop
     17# cp -a /mnt/cdrom/vmlinuz /var/tftpboot/vmlinuz-mondo
     18# cp -a /mnt/cdrom/initrd.img /var/tftpboot/initrd-mondo
     19# umount /mnt/cdrom

     21Thus the PXE ROM will boot mondo's kernel and mondo's initrd in memory and will append all the right configuration options (as you find in isolinux.cfg on the first bootable media) to which you need to add the keyword pxe.
