Configure PXE response delay?

We are running Zen 11.2 on SUSE 11 sp1. We need another PXE server in the organization for another purpose. A consultant pointed me to the "response delay" that an MS PXE server can be configured for. Is there a similar setting I can put in place on our Zen PXE server?

The goal is to set a 5 or 10 second response delay on the Zen PXE server. This will allow the new PXE server, when we have it turned on, to reply first, letting us use that when necessary. Most of the time, the new secondary PXE service wouldn't be active.

Doable? Steps? Links to a tech doc?

Thanks,

Todd Bowman

Sigh. OK, I won't waste any more time looking for it then.

Thanks for your help, even a 'no' answer can be good info.

However, you can bring down that one service when required.
