For Linux Install Party in my school, I've setup a machine that
can serve various Debian, Ubuntu (live or not) and Mint install
images by PXE (legacy and UEFI)

More precisely, for UEFI PXE boot, I'm using
(mostly because I found it when I search for something)
and I've a script that rewrite most syslinux config to grub config
(menu and entries)

PXE and UEFI choice is done automatically by isc-dhcp-server, based
on the Redhat document.

I need to refresh all of this for next week. I can try to publish
it on the web after if some are interested.
