I have been trying to get Debian squeeze installer via PXE for a while now,
and I have been stuck in the same place, and google has not been my friend
I installed the DHCP server, the TFTP server, I downloaded the netboot file
from http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/daily/netboot/, I put it in
Also, with apt-mirror I have mirrored the full i386 squeeze repository.
All that on the same box.
I can update other debian machines from my mirror so the mirror is working
I can PXE boot other machines from my PXE server, which means that DHCP and
TFTP work, as well as the netboot debian image.
I get to the installer, I choose the country, it gets -again- an IP from the
dhcp server, then asks for the mirror, I put the IP of my mirror and then...
In the alt+f4 console looks like the debian-installer is trying to download
from the mirror... the debian-installer?! and wget gets a 404 not found.
