Hangs at Dhcp on Boot help please.

Hangs at Dhcp on Boot help please.

This only seems to happen on some machines when we enable PXE boot. The machine im working with is a Dell Optiplex GX520 and uses a Broadcom Nic.  When booting up all the machine does is show Dhcp ...... and thats all. Has anyone else experienced this problem and found a fix for it?

RE: Hangs at Dhcp on Boot help please.

What version of ZEN are you running?  The Dell GX520 is fairly new, and to get it to work with imaging you have to download a new linux kernel from Novell's Forge site.   I haven't seen the problem you mention on that particular model, but when you do get past it, you're going to have problems with the imaging anyway until you do that update.
