Re: A small udeb contribution from an arm-chair developer

It would appear that Michael Peek works in an environment like mine.
Both windows and Debian machines on the same network. The DHCP server
belongs to the windows support people and they don't know how to set
it up for both windows and Debian.
What I have done is to create a floppy with a lot of little files
containing my network definitions and some other configuration
information. When I set up a Debian machine I place the Debian CD and
the floppy in the machine. Boot the installer and enter "install
file=/floppy/name" where name is the file containing the network
configuration for this machine. It looks like I could set up CD with
Michael's udeb that I could boot from and have it select the right
file to do the install. I hope to try this sometime. His udeb could be
a useful addition to Debian.
You're more than welcome to. I'll answer all the questions I can.
This contains both compiled udebs and the source.
