Setting Up A PXE Install Server For Multiple Linux Distributions On Debian Lenny

Debian, by suvi.

This tutorial shows how to set up a PXE (short for preboot execution environment)
install server on Debian Lenny. A PXE install server allows your client
computers to boot and install a Linux distribution over the network,
without the need of burning Linux iso images onto a CD/DVD, boot floppy
images, etc. This is handy if your client computers don’t have CD or
floppy drives, or if you want to set up multiple computers at the same
time (e.g. in a large enterprise), or simply because you want to save
the money for the CDs/DVDs. In this article I show how to configure a
PXE server that allows you to boot multiple distributions (i386 and
x86_64): Debian Lenny, Ubuntu 9.04, Fedora 10, CentOS 5.3, OpenSuSE
11.1, and Mandriva 2009.1.
