new package: nfsroot boot any client into Linux on network
30min after you installed this package on your server, you can:
Insert a nfsrootbootfloppy (create one with "mknfsrootboot")
in any computer on your local network that has it's networkcard
configured (running whatever OS), press "RESET", and hey presto,
it's running LINUX!
(and is configured to do just as much as your server, by default).
This package allows you to have most /etc files on the clients the
same as the server, and some different. You'll need 30k disk space
per potential client, and it's got a daemon that probes the network
for hw adresses, and puts them in /etc/bootpd, and makes /tftpboot
entries (excluding hosts in /etc/nfsroot/ignorehosts).
It really works very well for me, hope it does so for you too.
