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

    You can boot over a network using pxi-boot, but I have not tried it over a WiFi connection - it may be a problem. Wired? No problem. The issue is that with WiFi, you need to establish a valid connection before loading the kernel, and that is probably not possible. Just my best professional guess... Anyway, I'll ask some of my more knowlegable colleagues about that next week. It may be possible, but I just can't see how.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
