#1815 closed enhancement (notabug)

Proposed network boot helper

Reported by: David Kergyl Owned by: sdz
Priority: Low Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: Unspecified
Severity: Trivial Keywords: Network boot helper
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

One possible solution to the problem described here (Using a CD helper takes a lot of prep time before and after class) might be to set the PC BIOS to "boot from network before booting from hard disk" and to provide a network boot helper. If access rights to the boot helper could be globally enabled or disabled according to the class period, then it wouldn't be necessary to change the BIOS boot option before and after class.

You can boot a Fedora image and hence SoaS off the network using PXE boot already. PXE is the universally supported way to boot off a network. Details are available here http://boot.fedoraproject.org/
