I setup a network boot server this week to help me with reinstalling operating systems and repairing broken ones. So i don’t have to worry about a cd or dvd being scratched.
I like it as of right now i can install Windows 2000/2003/XP over the network going to make it automated here shortly make it so it doesn’t as any questions. so i don’t have to click as much
I also set it up so i can do more then install i can boot right off the network and have no reason to install a harddrive or anything in that computer or use it to boot up well i’m repairing the main harddrive. But right now i have setup in the system.
- Knoppix DVD 5.3.1 Release
- Back Track 3 – USB Version plus my own addins – has the same menu as if i put the cd in
- Ultimate Boot CD 4.11 – Has over a 100 Linux & Dos Programs and Boot Disks – I have Fully integrated there menu’s into mine so its not all changing on me. I like things to be one way and stay that way.
