PXE server using Dnsmasq and SystemRescueCD with minimal effort

If you are using DHCP server in your network environment, it's handy to be able to boot from network. It brings you many advantages especially when you are not able to boot operating system from the workstation's disk.

I would like to describe my experience with DHCP server called Dnsmasq. This software can also serve TFTP requests and act as DNS forwarder.
