Posted by Onice on Feb. 20 2007,11:41I am a kind of newbie in Linux, and have been given the task of remote booting a linux operating system via LAN. I am trying to boot it using rpld.conf. When trying to install the whole Debian it fails, maybe due to the size, so i will try with DSL. I only was wondering if anybody has tried to do it before, so he can help me, because i am a bit desperate with it.
In case the remote booting succeeds, next i have to do is booting a program to refresh the content of a flash memory contained in the Embedded pc, and there i get totally lost... i am supossed to boot some kind of file system with the program and the new content of the flash... or an image of that file system, i dont know. Please help me! u_u
