How do I setup a computer so that it boots up via network.

I'm trying to setup my computer it can boot up through a network card.

I want to create a backup method that will use the network card to fully restore a harddrive.

Wow!!
I have a hard time just monitioring three topic areas.  In fact, I usually only do C++ topic area, and I only go to the C and MFC topic areas when I'm really really bored.

I was recently unemployed myself, and I just got a job programming ATM machines.
The market is picking up now, so I would just enjoy your time off while it last, because I don't think it'll be long.

Axter.. I believe what you are looking for here is using PXE boot services?  Can you tell us what you are going to use on the other end?  Something like Ghost or RIS?

CrazyOne.. how've you been?  Many sorrys you are still on the hunt.  I am thankful to be working again myself, but took a huge hit in compensation.    Best wishes!  MSGeek.

I have I hit up everybody. On the tech side they aren't hiring anybody without a college degree even if it is just from data entry.

On the broom sweeping they aren't hiring unless you have Broom Sweeping certification and at least 3 years experience. The experience I go but don't have the Broom Sweeping certification. LOL

I'm not sure what you mean by a PXE boot service, however since I've had other priorities come up, I've had to drop this for now.

I've awarded points to the two experts who posted useful links.

Thanks everyone.

PXE boot services are what you use to boot without a foppy right from your Network Card. PXE is pre-execution environment.
