Installing Arch over network

I tried to install Arch on another computer via local network (using PXE). I followed the instruction given at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PXE

Eveything went well, but I cannot start dnsmasq service

rc.d start dnsmasq
:: Starting DNS/DHCP daemon                                              [BUSY] 
dnsmasq: TFTP directory /mnt/archiso inaccessible: Permission denied
                                                                         [FAIL] 

I am as the root, what is this permission error? and how can I resolve it?

Re: Installing Arch over network

dnsmasq drops from the user "root" to the user "dnsmasq" when it starts. Many daemons does this for security.

Look in  /etc/dnsmasq.conf and change the user you want it to be. Look for the lines

user=
group=

Or you can just chmod +r /mnt/archiso
