Net install


Hi all, i know this may seem unorthodox but here goes. I have an issue that i need to install windows on multiple computers and i dont want to have to move from box-to-box with the CD, so i looked up a way to do it, and there is. But its with windows .....

I'd like to know if there was a way to do it with Linux too, because according to this site all i need is a network share and a few other things, i have setup a Samba server that shares. So if there is a way to do this please let me know, thanx in advance!

As you appear to be running Debian,perhaps the following is what you are looking for:

If the boxes are more/less similar, you can consider using Clonezilla Server to do the job. Using it with DRBL & DRBL-winroll, you should be able to do deployments over LAN.

My apologies.
I thought you were looking to install Linux rather than Windows.
