A.1. Setup the DHCP service

As for the UNIX/Linux based approach (discussed in Section 4.3), you need to collect some information and data before setting everything up. First of all, you need the MAC address of your PA-RISC box. Please check rboot preparation for details. You are going to need a lifimage file. Please read Section 4.3.1.

Then, you have to enable DHCP service on your Windows™ box. You can do that by going into the Control Panel, open Add/Remove Programs, select Windows Components and finally Networking Services. There, enable Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

You need to configure the DHCP service now. Launch the DHCP admin tool by going into the Control Panel, open Admin Tools and select DHCP.
