Hi Simon,

I just tested your version and it looks very good.
I'm using cobbler for installing systems.

This is the actual config file I tested with:
      addn-hosts = /var/lib/cobbler/cobbler_hosts
      pxe-service=x86PC, "Boot PXELinux (=Cobbler controlled)", pxelinux

I tested by booting a new VMware Server system via PXE --> As expected no
PXE info.
Then I added the system to cobbler which effectively places its MAC and IP
in /etc/ethers and its IP and hostname in /var/lib/cobbler/cobbler_hosts )
Now I booted the same VM again and it immediately booted using the provided
PXE information.

So for my purposes this works perfectly.

Thank you very much!

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Niels Basjes
