Question Net boot in test environment.


Im dont know how to say this so...this is what I want to achive:

Boot Test from CD or floppy.
Copying Test's disk image from Server to Test.
Boot Test with fresh copy of Debian!

Im tired of reinstalling. But I dont even know how to make a floppy boot with net axx!! And to make the disk image I'v gatherd that dd might be what I want. I got both w2k and a Debian box to put the image on.

Thanks for any help!

Solution!!

Bootable floppy with network enabled

After searching for a few days I think I have something. But its DOS...

1. Check this site:
http://www.nu2.nu/bootdisk/network/

Tip! I made the floppy using the auto mode. Then I removed all net drivers (my card wasnt there in default).
Found and copyed the right net driver to the same folder. Then I edited the _msnet.nic and _msnet.pci to reflect my changes. You have to look around to find the info. I found mine in the net card .cab file. You need winzip or something...to look inside the .cab files.

2. Make a directory on your server. Linux or Win, doesnt matter. Share it out. Either with Samba or in Win.

3. Map up the share you just made.

4. Get ghost or something....

5. Transfer!

6. When thats stabel. Make a script.. My next job.

Im no expert, but I'll answer as good as I can.
