Diskless (Howto's my ****) a few scripts


I have been at this for three days reading howtos patching it together and just got it working before I commend it to the "will do tomorrow bin" here is quick few scripts and confs I am going to miss stuff but you are all clever guys and gals .


What the plan is to build a diskless station using initrd with base utils. All using PXE read the syslinux stuff well documented and simple to follow. I just help to build initrd and kernel what took me so long :

PS: thinstation install from sf installed it also its terrific some people are going to come into the office on monday and think I have gone nuts installing linux!

Back to business
