Download ERPXE

Download erpxe.current.tar.gz at http://www.erpxe.com/download/.

Extract ERPXE to root "/" directory

tar -xvzf erpxe.current.tar.gz 

Install a TFTP Service

yum install -y xinetd tftp-server

chkconfig xinetd on
chkconfig tftpd on

Config TFTP service

This step is very IMPORTANT! if the erpxe.remap configuration is missing most plugins will not work.

Edit "/etc/xinetd.d/tftp"

service tftp
{
	disable			= no
	socket_type		= dgram
	protocol		= udp
	wait			= yes
	user			= root
	server			= /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
	server_args		= -m /tftpboot/erpxe.remap -vvvvv -s /tftpboot
	per_source		= 11
	cps			= 100 2
	flags			= IPv4
}
