Hi I run a school network with compaq cq-610 ( I will check on the model I think it's right) and im getting tired of reinstalling windows xp. We have an unused windows server 2003 machine and I was wondering if we could LAN boot the machines? I've seen it done but don't know how to. Please help!

What do you mean by LAN boot?

Are you asking how to do a re-image of workstations over the LAN?

Sorta. I want to be able to remove the hard drives from the computers and still have them be able to boot from the Windows server. I do not know how to do this, any help would be appriciated.

What I really want Is something free.
Good luck with that request.
I have some pretty good Google foo and I can probably tell you right now that is a pretty tall order.

If you are sick and tired of reinstalling Windows, then you should think about making a base image for the computers. Then push the image down to the computer instead of reinstalling. I used to be able to multi-cast an entire computer lab in less than 15 minutes when I worked for the school district.

I watched that video. I will install Debain on the server. What do I do after that?
