-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 +

-Once you have the code, you can do a complete build of gPXE using using: +
- +
-  $ cd gpxe/src +
-  $ make +
- +
-or for Etherboot +

-This will generate bootable images for floppy disk, CD-ROM, and USB key, which is the best way to get started experimenting with gPXE.+

-  ​$ git pull+  ​cd gpxe/src 
 +  make
-This will fetch the latest changes and apply them to your tree.  This command will work only if you obtained your source tree using ''​git clone'';​ if you downloaded a tarball then the only way to update your tree is to download a new tarball.+**Centos 5 / Fedora 11 Notes**
-=== Source code for old versions ===+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 incorrect, this 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 bootloader, in maintenance-only mode) is available at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=etherboot.git]].
