Get PxeLinux and PXE-Knife working with QEMU over HTTP

Note : use latest version of Pxelinux to work over HTTP, for me version 3.80 worked.

Following is the way to run Pxe-knife (or any pxelinux based system) over http.

 
qemu -fda gpxe.dsk -net nic -net user -bootp http://10.0.0.2/pxeknife/pxelinux.0

With gpxe embedded script

I recompiled the gpxe with following embedded script ../contrib/scripts/forpxeknife.gpxe,

#!gpxe
echo "Hi, We will be using PXEKnife from URL http://www.alien.doesntexist.org/pxeknife"
dhcp net0
set 209:string /pxeknife.cfg/default
set 210:string http://www.alien.doesntexist.org/pxeknife/
echo "Here we go"
chain http://www.alien.doesntexist.org/pxeknife/pxelinux.0

and I compile with following command

 make clean && make  EMBEDDED_IMAGE=../contrib/scripts/forpxeknife.gpxe

I execute qemu with no extra parameters at-all.

qemu -fda gpxe.dsk
