It depends what you want to accomplish. If all you want to do is roll out one standard image, to machines which all have the same or very similar hardware specs, you're in business.

If on the other hand, you want to actually install say, RHEL and Windows on a PC completely over the network, and perform all configuration remotely, well that is pie in the sky so far as I understand it.

In your other post you mention RIS. RIS is an image deployment system, with MS group policies applied from the get go. In this case, you still have to build a standard image.

My experience has been that I roll out dual booting machines without difficulty, using standard windows and ubuntu images. For this I use a small dedicated NFS server that holds the images, and I use either clonezilla:http://clonezilla.org/ or the system rescue cd with partimage:http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page.

Post a little more about what you want to accomplish, and if I can point you in the right direction, I will.

No, you can't 'deploy' them, you need to use a tool like the one's I have linked to above. The only way of using a deployment type method is with RIS, or possibly using clonezilla in multicast operation. I use one server to hold images on an NFS export. I boot the client PC using systemrescuecd, see the link above. The steps following this are:

1: Get the client PC an IP address using
Code:
net-setup eth0
2: Make a directory where you will mount the NFS share using
Code:
mkdir /mnt/server
3: Mount the share:
Code:
mount -t nfs ip.ad.dr.ess:/NFS-EXPORT /mnt/server
4: Change to the share on the client PC:
Code:
cd /mnt/server/path/to/share
5: Use the partimage tool:
Code:
partimage
which is self explanatory.

I recommend lots of reading, the links I have posted above are the minimum to be looking at, also check out the partimage homepage: http://www.partimage.org/Main_Page.

If you've any other questions, post here, and I'll try to help. I just imaged thirty windows machines today using this method. It works!

What linux distro are you using for your NFS server? Each distribution is a little different.

This is a particularly easy to follow NFS tutorial. Make sure you follow all the steps! It is debian specific, but should be applicable to ubuntu also: http://www.besy.co.uk/debian/how_to_..._data_with_nfs

Nothing will work right the first time. Keep trying! I use ubuntu for all my servers, and I find it fantastic.

Follow the directions for reinstalling an image as in post #5 above, except when running partimage, make sure that the option to 'save partition to file' option is set, along with the path to your NFS share.

That's not an error - it's a warning
