I have a Maas server installed from the Ubuntu 12.04 installation CD.

The docs mention installing the maas-dhcp server. I tried to do this, but I cannot install it, it looks like this package is proposed for inclusion in Precise.

Here is the error that I get:
Package maas-dhcp is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package 'maas-dhcp' has no installation candidate

Is a binary available for this?

At any rate, I'd like to move forward here.

I understand how to configure a DHCP server, but I need details about where the directories are for images used for PXE boot and things.

Could you share how you got maas-dhcp installed?

I tried to do the apt-get update to update the list of repositories. But I get a bunch of errors. I tried to google for how to fix this, but all the solutions are for those with a GUI I have just got the server - no gui installed. I'm not familiar enough with apt to go about fixing this.

maas-dhcp is in precise, can you add more detail to your question on what the error you get when you try to install it? –  Jorge Castro May 5 '12 at 0:43
    
    
Here is the error that I get: Package maas-dhcp is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Perhaps delete this question now as you've solved it and it was an unrelated problem? –  Jorge Castro May 9 '12 at 2:53

I was getting this error too. all you need to do is refresh your repo indices:

sudo apt-get update

and it should be able to install maas-dhcp fine after that

I tried this, see my additions above... I get all kinds of 403 errors when I try to do what you recommend. –  David Buttrick May 8 '12 at 0:40
