Re: Creating PXE boot image

You may look at the ltsp-build-image command, it does exactly what you want.

I'm not saying you should use ltsp-server, you could download the source of this ltsp-build-image and see if you can use it in the way you want.

What that does, roughly is take a chroot filesystem (in ltsp case normally it is on /opt/ltsp/$arch - being $arch i386, amd64, etc.) where there's a fully working system with kernel and stuff, and it makes a image out of that chroot so it can then be sent by pxe to the thin clients machines. However in ltsp's case everything runs on the server itself, the image sent by pxe is much smaller and have only the minimal stuff to make the thin clients be able to run things on the root filesystem on the server.
