Network Boot

Hi there,
I'm trying to build a disk/fanless mp3 player (P1 166@100MHz, 64Megs RAM), based on Slackware 9.0

Now my problem is: how do I actually get the System installed on the servers NFS export? I dont want to mount and export the hdd wich the System is atm installed on (power consuption, waste of devices, noise etc).

Or shall i use a Flash IDE-Disk? (but 64Megs wont be enough, would they?[just an mp3 player wich gets the data from an SMB or NFS export])

And do you know a REALLY EASY step-by-step howto for building an Netboot PROM?

I didn't find any topic related to my question so im asking here (correct me if there'd be one.)

Nils Werner, Germany
