I'm working on TCOS project (thin client operating system) and I have
readed in GoogleSummerofCode06 debian's wiki this:
Implement a script frontend to Debian Live that creates Live netbooting
media, ie. CF/USB Flash, Floppy, CD-ROM (for use in networks where no
DHCP server can be used). Such media would contain a kernel, initrd and
a hard-coded IP address inside the bootloader's config. file.
I have a bootable initramfs and vmlinuz (2.6.16-1-486) that starts from
cdrom uses cdmline params like server=10.0.0.1.
Vars can be put in menu.lst or isolinux.cfg (my script who made the iso
can made a grb or isolinux image) or write in boot: xxxxx
I'm using it to boot a thin client and connect to remote XMDCP server
without PXE network capable cards.
