Need linux network bootdisk..
Posted on 2002-07-27
I'm actually trying to install Windows Servers from a fileserver, and need a way to:
1. Boot from a diskette.
2. Delete all partitions (if any exists)
3. Create a C: partition (8-10 gigs or so) formated as FAT or FAT32
4. Connect through ftp to a fileserver and download some driectories containing the Windows files I need and
5. Reboot and start a .bat file that will start the installation of Windows
I imagine all of this is possible under Linux (at least the first 4., I'm not sure how I could make it reboot and execute the .bat file under Linux.... )
Any ideas, comments are welcome..
