Fw: Working Network Installs
I wrote this up a few days back, but no one seems to be interested... well,
I do happen to have this working now (at least for i386, sparc is something
I will work on when I get time).
So, a quick question... how would I go about getting the work I've done
submitted, I still need to document however (which should be in my opinion
additional documentation for the the debian install document), and I plan on
doing that during the rest of this week as time permits, but before I go on
with documenting and such forth, should I even bother? Is anyone
There was some discussion a little while ago about this sort of thing, and I
know I needed this working, so surely there must be some interested
