North Bay Linux Users’ Group

general meeting

PXE Magic

When: Tue June 13, 2006 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Kyle Rankin

Location: O'Reilly Media

These days most modern computers support PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) booting—booting from the network. Booting from the network allows you to do all sorts of interesting things including setting up thin clients, automate kickstart environments and more. In this talk Kyle Rankin will discuss how to set up a PXE boot server and will cover thin clients, kickstarting computers completely over the network, PXE booting rescue discs, and how to throw it all in a menu system that lets you choose what to boot.
