Description Tom Judge 2009-08-11 19:40:05 UTC
When the pxeboot loader sends the dhcp request to the server to get the
configuration it currently always sets the vendor identifier to PXEClient.

This is not very useful when trying to setup PXE environment to install
multiple releases on different architectures.

The attached patch changes the identifier to look like:


i386 is substituted for amd64 on amd64 hosts and omited on other architectures.
