a network server

can chat about this ebuild ?
i know nothing of said project but ive started hacking out an ebuild
im workin on some ebuilds for this but ill post em later after 1.4 release
any chance you could put those up here or somewhere?
id like to look em over (and soon to try them out)
mknbi is in portage
see #11955 for details
with this tool you can tagg kernel images for etherboot (diskless workstation)
seemant: adding you as requested :)

i took some files from a k12ltsp installation to make booting over the network much
with the ebuild install you can choose only one ROM image but with this 'hack' you
can boot of any supported nic. just need the files in the tar-archive and a little change
to your dhcpd.conf.

You can send files to email@example.com and I'll make changes to ltsp-core package.
i'm re-installing on my webserver atm, it'll probably be up tomorrow ... try again then.
