install linux on a pc without a graphics card or cd-rom
Hi, I'd like to create a really low-consumption bare bones machine, for downloading purposes, 24/7. I'm thinking the machine should only have a hard disk (around 100GB) and a network card.
I'd like to run bit torrent on it on console, and ssh to it from other machines. My main question, for the moment, is how can I install linux on such a machine? Would I have to do a dd on the hard disk from another computer, then boot from the hard disk? If the network card is capable of booting from the network, can it be done? I'd just like general guidelines or resources I can take a look at on the 'net. Thank you
