Facilitate mass Ubuntu installation via netboot configuration management

Registered by Reinhard Tartler on 2005-10-19

We want to enable users to easily perform mass installations of Ubuntu on a pool of machines. We develop a console tool to intelligently manage dhcpd and syslinux configuration, and provide a GUI frontend for easy point and click configuration.

N.B. We use the term 'cluster' to mean 'a pool of machines'. While this could be a pool of cluster compute nodes, it doesn't have to be. Because the mass-install infrastructure also provides generic netboot management, a more accurate name for this specification would be NetbootManagement.
