Cannot find system-config-netboot rpm package for RHEL5x86

Hi,

I cannot find system-config-netboot rpm package in the RHEL5x86 installation CD's.
I am in need of this rpm for setting up an RHEL5 server as a PXE install server.

Is there some other rpm package in RHEL5x86 instead for this purpose?

Please suggest,
Thanks & Regards

This is definitely weird. I got on rhn and found the rpm only for rhel4. The best part is that the PXE docs for rhel5 mention installing set-config-netboot. I would suggest utilizing red hat support.

You could also try an rpm --rebuild with the source from rhel4

http://updates.redhat.com/enterprise/4ES/en/os/SRPMS/system-config-netboot-0.1.40-1_EL4.src.rpm

"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"
