I am trying to take our licensed wipe cd from whitecanyon software get in our PXE server. I'm very new to Linux and have had very minimal results so far. The PXE server is on a Windows 2003 Server using TFTPD32 and pxelinux. I've done a lot of reading and I think what is happening is that the filesystem squashfs is not getting loaded. It looks as if the wiping software is based on Gentoo and from what I understand I probably need to recompile the init to be more of a ram disc then an optical disc. Below is what is getting sent via TFTPD32. The error message I receive during boot is:

!! Invalid loop location: /image.squashfs
!! Please export LOOP with a valid location, or reboot and pass a proper loop

LABEL DiskWipePro
MENU LABEL ^9. WipeDrive Pro
kernel utils/wipe/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.22-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc looptype= squashfs loop=utils/wipe/image.squashfs udev nodevfs cdroot dodmraid real_root=/dev/loop0
append initrd=utils/wipe/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.22-gentoo-r5

thanks for helping out the newb...
