Memtest over PXE Boot

Download memtest from   http://www.memtest.org/#downiso.
Make sure you download the Pre-Built Binary zip/gz file.

Copy the bin file into the /tftpboot/linux-install directory and rename it to 'memtest'. You MUST REMOVE the .bin extension or it WILL NOT BOOT!

Edit /tftpboot/linux-install/pxelinux.cfg/default and add the following lines.

#vi /tftpboot/linux-install/pxelinux.cfg/default
default linux
prompt 1
timeout 100
label linux
kernel memtest
