-Source code is now maintained in our git repository ​at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git]].  You can check out a copy of the source tree using+Prebuilt gPXE images are available from [[http://​rom-o-matic.net/​]]. ​ Images can be generated from official gPXE releases or from the current development tree.  This is probably the easiest way to get started with gPXE. 
 +==== Source code (git) ==== 
 +You can browse the current development tree at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git]], or check out a copy using:
   git clone git://​git.etherboot.org/​scm/​gpxe.git   git clone git://​git.etherboot.org/​scm/​gpxe.git
-and then build it using+To update your checked out copy at any time, use:
-  cd src+  ​git pull 
 +==== Source code (tarballs) ==== 
 +If you do not have ''​git''​ installed, you can download a tarball of the current development snapshot of gPXE from [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git;​a=snapshot]] or, a tarball of the most recent official release from  [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​gpxe/​]]. 
 +==== Extensions in development (gpxe-staging) ==== 
 +A separate repository is kept for useful gPXE extensions and patches that have not been sufficiently tested and reviewed to be merged into gPXE mainline. See the [[staging|staging page]] if you'd like to help us test them. 
 +==== Building from Source ==== 
 +A complete build of gPXE or Etherboot requires the ''​syslinux''​ and ''​mtools''​ packages in your development environment. ​ ''​syslinux''​ is required in order to create ISO images. On RedHat/​Fedora systems you can install these packages using: 
 +  sudo yum install syslinux mtools 
 +You can then do a complete build of gPXE using: 
 +  ​cd gpxe/src
   make   make
-This will generate bootable images for floppy diskCD-ROM, and USB keywhich is the best way to get started experimenting with gPXE.+**Centos 5 / Fedora 11 Notes** 
 +You may need to set the value in the line 59 of src/​arch/​i386/​Makefile correctly (/​usr/​share/​syslinux/​isolinux.bin)apparently the reference to /​usr/​lib/​syslinux/​isolinux.bin is incorrectthis has not been tested in other distros. ISOLINUX_BIN config has been missing for a while. 
 +=== Etherboot 5.4 and older releases === 
 +Source code for Etherboot 5.4 (our legacy bootloaderin maintenance-only mode) is available at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=etherboot.git]]. 
 +The source code for older Etherboot releases is available from [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=4233&​package_id=4250]]

-==== Download pre-built binaries ==== 
-You can get pre-built ROM images from [[http://​rom-o-matic.net/​]]. ​ At the moment, only Etherboot 5.4 ROMs are available; gPXE ROMs will be available shortly.
