    Exclamation pxelinux not finding eth0

    We are currently using Paragon Deployment Manager to roll out new machines. It uses a linux enviroment called pxelinux which it gets from our PXE server.

    We've made the appropriate changes to the DHCP options 066 and 067. And we are able to boot off of our PXE server on the network.

    Now the problems is, when we start our deployment session on our server, we go to the client, which has already booted into the pxelinux enviroment. The next step is to start the multicast session, but when we do that we get an error saying that eth0 cannot be found.

    Now we go into the command promt, keep in mind we are all windows so our knowledge here is limited, do an ifconfig -a and all that it returns is the lo interface.

    Is there some way to manually create an eth0 in the command?

    Any thoughts on this would be great. We assume that the pxelinux just can't see our network adapter.
