ignore that step, just hit next. it's just trying to figure out its
host name which doesn't matter for installation. annoying.
> ok , I have the client pc's booting to the pxe server and starting the image
> download. now basically what i have is the screen looking just like a normal
> cd install and it hangs on trying to resolve dns. it reports:
> reverse name lookup on self failed
> reverse name lookup on dns failed
> and then it prompts me to input my host name and domain of the client
> machine. which there is nothing on the client machine so i do not have any
> info to input????
> it does this if i select static or dchcp for the client during the setup
> DNS is running and active....
> any ideas would be appreciated.......
