    Default Make iso for Pxe boot

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there was an application that would allow me to make an iso of my system, and then through a windows PXE server boot that image from the network?

    Does anyone know of a program like this?

    Thanks

    Have a look at syslinux - it includes a pxe component. Grub4dos also has
    an option to cache an ISO image or use it for PXE.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have used Grub4dos to boot DSL.iso. I have also tried to boot opensuse.iso, but it requires NFS. Since i am running this off a windows server, i cannot make an NFS server. Is there a way to make it so i don't need NFS?

    Thank you,

    I haven't looked at doing this myself, but NFS is available for Windows,
    either using cygwin or using the Microsoft NFS server that's part of
    Microsoft's "Services for Unix" which looks to be a free download....
