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.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
