01:26<fo0bar>efudd: 1-step netboot finnix from finnix is almost done
01:27<fo0bar>I have a script that configures and runs tftpd and nfsd for you
01:27<internat>oooh, that would be nice
01:27<internat>is that so u can network boot another computer?
01:28<fo0bar>not dhcpd though (having more than one dhcp server on a network almost always invites pain), but it tells you what you need to put in your existing dhcp server
01:28<fo0bar>internat: yep
01:28<internat>is it going to be like boot the cd to set up the server on one computer, and then boot the computer u want to install onto?
01:28<internat>i had to do that for a laptop at uni that had no cd drives and only had a boot rom
01:28<fo0bar>this was something caker requested a long time ago (he currently uses a tiny busybox initrd to fix ill remote hosts), I'm just getting around to it now
01:29<fo0bar>internat: well, you don't "install" finnix of course (some people do, but I never know why)
01:29<fo0bar>but yeah. boot finnix, start netboot services, tweak dhcp server, netboot 2nd machine
01:30<fo0bar>boom, 2nd machine has finnix
01:30<internat>interesting
01:30<fo0bar>you can of course also copy the relavent files to a permanent tftp/nfs server
01:30<internat>i want someone to come up with an easy way of just putting iso linux or something on my external hdd, and then if there is isos in a certian folder it automaticly adds them to the boot menu and boots from which ever ones are bootable
01:31<fo0bar>believe me, I've looked at that
01:31<fo0bar>AFAICT, the el torrito spec doesn't really make that possible
01:31<fo0bar>I think it would be possible to do, but only if the iso fit completely in memory
01:32<fo0bar>(the same thing is done for booting floppy images from isolinux)
01:32<fo0bar>but it would be great to have a mega-dvd that was bootable and let you have a debian install disc, windows install disc, finnix disc, etc
01:33<internat>it has to be doable
01:33<internat>i have cdimage on a dvd at the moment and i can boot certian images, but it was painful to manually set up
