I'm trying to do a network install of XP Home Edition and it doesn't seem to be working.

Alright when I start my laptop with my boot disk I get the error "PXE-53: No boot filename received".

I guess a problem might be is I'm not sure whether or not I have properly set up a DHCP server and made sure a folder was shared. Can anyone explain how I would do this. I'm pretty sure the boot disk is fine, just my setup on the other end needs some help.

I have a spare router and many Ethernet cables to setup any server I may need.

Need help. I still can't get it to work. I've tried these tutorials with no luck.

It's not that my laptop doesn't boot over PXE, its just lame stuff elsewhere where my computer falls through in those tutorials.

Can anyone offer any advice?

I would advise you try the ConeZilla Live CD and configure a computer as a CloneZilla Server. From there, have it run the DHCP, BOOTP, TFTP and other services required...

You can then make an image and drop it down on the computer via PXE and it should work.
