Comment 12 Mikael 2003-06-23 06:21:12 UTC
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. 
Comment 13 Andres Toomsalu 2003-06-24 02:07:46 UTC
URL not working for me - connection refused.
You can send files to and I'll make changes to ltsp-core package.
Comment 14 Mikael 2003-06-24 07:15:43 UTC
i'm re-installing on my webserver atm, it'll probably be up tomorrow ... try again then.
