read the linux diskless howto. (or something similar) and search google for
the info. Pcquest also had an article on this, so u cud go to
www.pcquest.com/linux . I had tried this once last year. and it was quite
simple. basically u set up tftp for the kernel, and then u do a nfs mount
for the other partitions. I used this for simple xterminals with good
results. (though the comps did hav hdd.. this was an acedemic excercise) Now
i wan't to know that is there any remote deployment server available for
linux, something to the win2k deployment wizard, that uses boot rom enabled
lan cards to do remote deployment.
