Linux installation on bunch of PC's


hi all!

can you give me best idea how to install linux fedora on a bunch of pc's (maybe even 150 different machines).

problem is that those machines will have no CD rom integrated (i'm not sure about usb eather)... can i install it using network, without using network cd?


thank you in advance!

the ideal would be a pxe network boot, with kickstart. http://www.stanford.edu/~alfw/PXE-Ki...Kickstart.html which would allow a 100% automated build as long as bios settings are configured right. this assume you have a pxe compatible hardware base of course, but these days you should be able to assume it to some extent.

You can also use an application designed specifically to do this called SystemImager.
