I want to setup a Linux server to several network computers that will boot from the server (diskless workstations). They will usually be running Win95, but sometimes I want to boot linux on one of them. Is this possible? Also, is there any recommendations for 100Mbs cards? And, has anyone tried the Lynksys 100baseT 4 socket hub (going for under $300)

You can boot diskless clients if you boot the machines iwth a bootfloppys and configures those bootfloppys to broadcast for a bootpd server that also acts as NFS server for the root partition. Bootpd gibes each broadcasting an IP depending on a tabel it has mapping IP:s towards hw:s addresses. The NFS root partition requires that the bootfloppys you have supports that too.

Might be a bit easier to have root diskthat boots the local machines and then you have a central NFS and Net sevrice server to serve them.

Good luck though!
