Before setting up an install server
Before you set up and administer an install server,
Install the Internet Utilities (inet) package, which is provided with UnixWare.
Configure your UnixWare system for TCP/IP (Transmission Control
When you are configuring your system for network installation
over a TCP/IP network,
you can simplify the network installations that are performed from
this install server by configuring an Internet Boot Protocol
(BOOTP) server on your network.
To do so,
on the BOOTP server, edit the /etc/bootptab configuration file and
set :sa=IP: (where IP is the
install server IP address, such as 18.104.22.168).

Problems can be caused if the server is also an NIS
client as it will pick up the services map rather than the local
file. This can cause
to be misconfigured.
You need to ensure that the services map contains an inetinst 6969/tcp
entry for network installs to work.
Install the Server Utilities package (server) on your system.
This package is provided with UnixWare.
Configure any external CD-ROM or tape drive to
be used to load the packages.
