    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You need to set up the server to provide pxe (network) boot services for the clients. Then, you need to make sure the clients are capable of booting from the network and that the network boot is the first boot device set in the bios of the clients. FWIW, it's usually a good idea to have at least a small disc for swap locally on the clients, otherwise your network is going to get saturated fast.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
