    Title is rather self explanatory I think... Just built a 4T NAS using FreeNAS and would like to set it up for Lin, Win Install, system diags and Ghost operation via PXE boot. Of course in the process I am also looking for suggested diag bootable software suggestions.. In a perfect world I would not only be able to run diags but access antivirus and possibly manipulate the file system of the host machine.

    So, anybody know how to do that one ;)

    I resolved this on my own.. using Tomato as my routers main software I added
    to Administration > DNSMasq where xx is the IP of my FreeNAS Server

    In FreeNAS I enabled TFTP and set my share path. I then got your install script and ran it for 'multiple linux installs the easy way' and copied those files to my TFTP share path.


    Now I just have to figure out how to get a windows install to run from it and recovery tools like antivirus and ghost ;)
