Not sure wheer to post this so thought I would go here.

Has any one ever set one of these up?

The ideas is that i have a windows desk top machine installed to the local hard drive.

Reboot it and do a network boot, and its boots Linux from a network file system, with out writing any files to the local drive. Once I am done with linux reboot the PC to hard drive and PC is back to windows.

Any one done any thing like this before.

    I've used FOG imaging before. So during the boot the computer would check the fog server to see if there was any work needing to be done. Set Network boot as the first boot device. If nothing was there it would move down and boot off the disk. If there was either an upload or a download requested then it would boot up into the FOG client and preform the work.

    What was your question?
    Decide what to be and go be it.
