What's the plural of guru ?
Shouldn't it just be guru ?
Then shouldn't it be "s/you ILUG gurus/the ILUG guru/".
The webster online dictionary seems to side with you,
but that just means that you are both wrong. :-)

I was looking at the BIOS on a P4 recently, and it
had the 'boot from LAN' as an option, but on boot
there was an 'press Fsomething to configure PXE'
That then let you configure exactly how you wanted
the PXE boot to happen ( I seem to recall it set
timeouts and other stuff )...
So it may be that you've told the bios to boot
using the PXE engine - but the PXE engine needs
further configuration to get to know what it
wants to do.
