GParted via PXE.

This article assumes you already have:

1. A working pxelinux style PXE server.

2. A working DHCP server.

3. The Parted Magic PXE version from Parted Magic.

Setup the PXE server

# mkdir -p /tftpboot/images/pmagic
# unzip the partedmagic-pxe-$VERSION.zip to /tmp 
# cp the contents on the pmagic directory to /tftpboot/images/pmagic

Add the following lines to the pxelinux configuration file (/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default by default)

default pmagic

label pmagic
  kernel images/pmagic/bzImage
  append noapic initrd=images/pmagic/initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk_size=100000
