Setting Up Your Own Diskless Workstations with LTSP - page 3
The Whys and Wherefores of LTSP
First of all, visit Rom-o-matic and create a boot program for your network cards. On this site, you can get this program in two variants: for hard-coding into the network card for diskette booting. The second variant can be used for debugging or checking procedures.
Write the image (about 32kb) onto a diskette (don't forget to insert it!) and type:
dd if=eb-5.0.7-netcard.lzdsk of=/dev/fd0
where eb-5.0.7-netcard.lzdsk is the file downloaded from the Rom-o-matic site.
Now the bootable diskette is ready. Boot from it on the workstation and after the boot process is finished X Window will appear ready to login.
