DNSMASQ add-on for ReadyNAS Duo

Guys,

 

I would like to use my ReadyNAS Duo to boot diskless PC over the network (LAN).

 

To do that I have to run PXE server on the NAS.

After extensive research the only add-on which is close to what I need is DNSMASQ (contains full PXE server) from Whocares? (Whocares? is not active in the last two years). Of course the links in his post are not working:

For ReadyNAS NV/NV+/Duo/1x. (Sparc): Dnsmasq_2.52-readynas-0.1.1.bin
For ReadyNAS Pro/NVX/2,3,4xxx (Intel): Dnsmasq_2.52-readypro-0.1.1.bin

 

Do you know where can I get DNSMASQ add-on for ReadyNAS Duo from?

 

Other ideas on how to boot diskless PC from the NAS are very welcome.

 

Thank you in advance,

V
