BKO is cool

Today I stumbled across boot.kernel.org. It is cool. The use of gPxe and wanbooting is something I have wanted to do for a while. Even in a Solaris environment Wan booting is so, well…useful. Wan booting opens up a whole new range of architectural possibilities, which sit quite nicely in virtual architectures.

I’ve loaded it onto a small USB device and booted by HP2133 laptop with it. Neat. I gave Debian a whirl but it got stuck looking for a NAS mount. Never mind, another utility I tried worked fine as I’m sure most of the other options do.

BKO is cool and I commend it to the house!
