Default PXE Boot and G4L Image Server

Hi all

I am trying to setup a Ubuntu (Hardy) PC to act as a "server" so that new PC's we have delivered can boot from PXE, connect to the Ubuntu server and then use G4L to download a image file and be setup on our domain.

Would the following tutorial work ok for this :

If anyone has any other ideas/thoughts on how to automate this system please do let me know!

Kind regards
Colin

I'm sorry, but I haven't tried this, but I don't think you can boot from a G4L image.

Default I've done it with Clonzilla

I think Clonezilla is better designed for PXE
