Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What is WDS? Windows Deployment Service? What it actually does? Isn't it too Windows-specific and making assumptions? Try installing Slax in a virtual machine to get familiar with its normal OS installation process maybe..
In that case I would recommend choosing a virual machine solution (there is always free Qemu; there also seems to be a free-of-charge edition of VMWare Server). In the virtual machine you can install the Slax build as if it was a physical machine. You can assign an IP address to VM, too. To the network clients it can be made indistinguishable from a real computer.
What exactly are you trying to do then? If you need to use WDS to supply network boot image to thin clients, you need to be able to just supply a prepared boot image. That image is probably simple to create inside a Linux-based VM on your personal development computer (I've never done this exact thing, but I remember seeing links to HOWTOs). Then you may try to force WDS to give out this image to the thin clients. I am not sure whether it is possible on the Windows side, though.
When thin client connects to server(with Windows Server 2008),I need it receives a Slax boot.I managed to force the Slax boot to start but appear the message:"Fatal error occured - Canīt find executable chroot command.".The links with images below show my problem(tests were performed on the same machine):
The archives of my WDS server using is the same archives of .ISO image(I extracts only).Note the difference between images,in .ISO image it load the modules and in WDS this does not happen.The chroot command probaly is within one of these modules and this causes my problem.

I really tried to find anything in internet but I found nothing with Slax. I tried to follow this tutorial for Ubuntu(http://www.deployvista.com/Home/tabi...S/Default.aspx) to try to adapt it later but failed =/(even with the tutorial gave error). I do not know what to do.
