I was wondering if it's possible to do a remote install of Slackware. I have physical access to the box I want it on, but I don't really want to mess with a keyboard and hooking up the monitor to install it. Can I boot to the CD and run the SSH daemon and then install it that way? Or is there a better way? If it's easier to just install it with a keyboard, I will.
The purpose of the install is as a local file/web server. It's currently running Slackware (http://local.thescripters.net
) and so I was also curious what was considered to be the "best" file system for such an application. Currently, it's ext4. But it's still somewhat set up as a desktop system. I'm going to redo it as a server. Thoughts? Opinions?
I have to completely redo the partitioning on it, anyway, so I might as well get the right file system to begin with.
