How do I do a network based installation from kiyoshi?

kiyoshi is configured to offer a Debian Etch or Debian Lenny installer via the network (via tftp) in our Telehouse location (see steps to do this in XO/Bandcon).

If you would like to use it, follow these steps:

  • Find the network cable plugged into the bottom network card on kiyoshi.
  • Plug this cable into the nic of the server you want to install debian on.
  • Configure the target server to boot from the network device
  • You should be all set. Note: when the debian installer begins, you can unplug the network cable, and plug in a cable connecting the server to the real network for the completion of the installation.
