North Bay Linux Users’ Group

general meeting

PXE Magic

When: Tue December 11, 2012 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Kyle Rankin

Location: O'Reilly Media

You used to install Linux with floppy disks or CD-ROM. If you have a lot of servers, want to live in the 21st century, or just don’t feel like getting up from your desk you should abandon that approach in favor of PXE booting over the network. In this talk Kyle will give an introduction to how PXE and kickstart/preseed installations work and follow up with how to adapt Debian and Ubuntu’s preconfigured PXE menus to create your own custom nice-looking PXE menu installer.
