Ok here's what's up: I run a small journalism department with 5 macs at a school which is almost exclusively PC. We just bought an Xserve (don't ask how we managed such a feat) and I want to experiment with NetBoot since it would be nice to have everyone's preferences and files stored on the server. I'm completely boggled by OS X's Open Directory and NetBoot. For some reason the macs can't locate the NetBoot server I set up nor can they find the Xserve's Open Directory services. Anyhoo, another problem the macs on campus have been having is that they can't get an IP from the DHCP server. Only when they're set to "Manual" or "Manual IP with DHCP" can we get an internet connection. Any tips? PS: The school's IT dept. says the DHCP thing is Apple's problem and Apple says its an IT problem, go fig.
