samba/CIFS support
Hi all, firstly I want to say that you all did a nice job on iPXE, it works really great. I have used it for some private projects but now we are switching deployment environments at work. We are trying to change to a new process kickstarted by iPXE. Currently we have the ISO's we want to boot set up on a web-server, but this is not the original locations of the ISO's; those are actually located on a samba share. So we were wondering if it is possible for iPXE to boot from samba/CIFS instead of http/nfs. Searching through the documentation and forum did not turn anything up for me except that nfs is supported. Being able to boot from a share removes the hassle of copying the ISO's every time we make a change to one of them, which happens fairly often. Thanks in advance for all the help you can offer, it is greatly appreciated!

RE: samba/CIFS support
There is unfortunately no support for SMB/CIFS in iPXE. The only other alternative I'd use is to mount the CIFS share on the http/nfs server and reshare it there instead of copying the changed files every time.
