Anybody know how to netboot Debian on a PowerMac?
I'd like to setup a PowerMac to run diskless. (I know, disks are
cheap -- this is just for fun. Also, it's a dry-run for a non-powerPC
system that really does need to run diskless that I have been asked to
set up for Work.)
I know I'll need to provide a dhcp and tftp server (I'm planning on
using dnsmasq for both), and I'll have to boot via Open Firmware. But
the details are a mystery to me.
1) What files do I need to put in the tftp directory?
2) What options do I need to specify in the DHCP reply?
3) Can I do an install completely over the network -- no CD? Same
questions as (1) & (2) for the install.
4) What exactly do I need to type at the Open Firmware prompt in order
to get the process started?
Thanks in advance for any help!
