I have multiple diagnostics CDs that I want to avoid making twenty copies of for the sake of time and convenience. I figured a good way to do this would be to boot an image of the necessary CD over the network. However, most of the information on booting over the network is about imaging.
I've looked at a few open-source solutions, but all of them were relevant to install, backing up, or restoring an OS. I'd like to be able to select the network boot as the computer's booting, select which CD image to boot to, and have the rest be just as if I'd put the disc straight in the drive.
What sort of server do I need? Are there any software solutions that you would recommend? Am I missing something entirely?
