Does FAI or Kickstart just install OS or entire image?
I want to install FAI, Kickstart, or some other tool to fully automatic install workstations from a server. Now I can't figure out if these tools are just meant to install the OS or if it is also possible to dump a complete linux clone onto the workstations. Cause, I do not want to install various 3rd party software on each and every workstation independently.
Is there a difference (w.r.t. this topic) between FAI and Kickstart? And if these tools are not capable of installing a full clone: does a tool exists which can do the job? So the nodes can be fully installed via the network (without having to use any boot CDs)?
I appreciate the help!!
