Installing Ubuntu 10.10 over LAN

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/WindowsServerNetboot

Useful, but was very buggy when it came down to pulling the image off of a remote server. Couldn’t get it to work, and besides, I needed the linux partition manager booted up via the “Live” version…no install (my Toshiba M200 doesn’t recognize the external PCMCIA optical drive under linux…AND doesn’t have boot from USB (major failure))

Slick for most other machines though…especially if they don’t have drives or similar.
