I have installed the media CORE on a standalone server with Kubuntu. Network and DHCP are working fine on the other XP computers in the house. I have set up a test PC on a wired LAN with boot to network settings and configured it the device settings as much as I could.
The server cannot see the PC. Do I have to enter a MAC address for it to find it. I would of thought that the server would have been able to identify all MAC addresses on a network and then for the user to simply identify the correct one. If I do have to get the MAC address, where can I find it. It is not on the initial boot-up screen.
I am getting quite frustrated with this and could really use some help. Is there a good beginners guide for a home setup? I need to know exactly what to do to get a computer to boot from LAN from start to end, without missing any "ovbious" steps. Then I can get the other computers in the house to follow.
Thanks in advance.
