I work for a large human services organization. We currently run on a
Novell 3.12 100-user network. All of the client PC' s are running
Win'95. Our agency is growing and I have managed to convince the
management to let me implement Linux as a Web/Email server. It is
working great, and I have them convinced that Samba can handle file and
print services as well ( eventually eliminating Novell and fighting off
the temptation of others to use NT). We are using a bunch of outdated
286 machines to serve as print servers for all of our printers. I would
like to continue using these machines, except convert them to Linux and
have them boot from floppy. This really isn't a diskless system... Can
anybody give me some info on how to set this up???
I assume that this is possible via the root file system via NFS. Can I
do this with a kernel and some configurations on a floppy. To further
complicate the floppy drives are only 720K.
