I have a linux boot image which when booted connects a client to a server that wipes hard drives. As I have a lot of machines I need to to wipe on a daily basis I want to use something like Altiris or similar.
I have an Altiris server 6.9 up and running but am unsure how to get this image in place. Is there a better windows alternative that could do this? something like windows deployment server maybe?
If anyone has specific steps to get the image onto altiris that would also be great

You already have a deployment server so no need to use another use that one.
