    I would like to use WRT54G to boot a server connected to it using PXE.

    I already found that I can add

    option tftp <ipaddress>
    option bootfile <mybootfile>

    to the DHCP server config.

    Now, I would like to use wrt54g as tftp server as well. I believe that the tftpd provided with wrt54g is not a "full" version. Where do I get a full version binary or source to compile (and how do I compile it so it runs on the linksys device.

    Thank you.

    Maybe these will work. See here for instructions on how to use OpenWRT packages on DD-WRT.

    Is there plan to make the webserver in DD-WRT more user friendly? No need to telnet in and install these "packages"? In other words, make it GUI? All I really need is for the WRT54G host a few webpages with a few small gifs. It seems way overkill using a full-blown computer to host this website using IIS or Apache. I mean the potential for DD-WRT to do this on a WRT54G is there, right? Not impossible given the hardware resource limits of the router and the 3MB limit of the stock Linksys FW that can host a third party FW?
