Sub_title: Nice project for somebody...

Ive had an idea for another way to boot puppy Linux, another fancy trick that puppy can do to impress new Linux users...Puppy linux prides itself on how many different ways it can be started up!

It should be possible to create a script with a gui to select an ISO file, and make that ISO boot over a standard network. The script would mount the ISO file, and merge some of the files in it, then offer the merged initrd.gz, plus the vmlinuz out via a netboot server (already created!) Ive got no use for such a utility (or the programming ability to make it), but I know where the tools/information is that would be needed.

The commands needed by the script to create a netboot image after the ISO has been selected and mounted


And then a netboot server


This should be all the components needed. I will keep track of this thread if I can be of assistance to whoever takes it up Smile

Sorry, my server is down atm!
