I will be running a bootp server on windows 2k, I have found a program that allows me to do this.
I need a good site that takes me through the steps for setting up a diskless boot linux image file. I have a spare HDD I can install linux on to make the image, however I require a beginners guide for this type of thing.
Why? I recently had a major power cut in the office and we lost 20 HDD drives in local PC's, I need a stop gap until the new drives arrive. This is quite urgent. I cannot format the server so installing linux on it is out of the question.
right I found a special version of the linux kernel that works over a network. My next question is:
Is it possible to compile a version of linux under windows 2k?
I have various microsoft programing suites (as I use visual C++) but these files I know do not compile well under visual studio, I have used some linux command line packages before, and even some that work in windows but I cant remember the names of them. Also websites where I can d/l trial versions would be useful....
