2950 "ipmitool chassis bootdev" not working

Hello,

I've been trying to change the boot device on a power edge 2950 using  
ipmitool with the syntax "ipmitool chassis bootdev pxe". ipmitool  
says that it's set the boot device to pxe, but on the next boot the  
system boots from the hard drive. I've tried the version of ipmitool  
that came with CentOS 4.4 (1.8.7) and the latest (1.8.9) but neither  
work.

Has anyone managed to get this to work?

Alternatively, does anyone know of any other way to change the boot  
order from a linux command line?

Thanks in advance.
