LTSP Netbooting Enhancement

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2006-06-09

Currently Ubuntu LTSPs ltsp-update-kernels command uses a bootloader from the server, this should be changed to be used from the client chroot if possible, also an --etherboot option should be added to address older ltsp setups that rely on etherboot and cant be switched easily to PXE. The mknbi package should be moved to main alongside and support for multiple chroots (kernels) should be added.

Whiteboard

the code is already in ltsp-update-kernels but untested, mknbi needs to move to main, neither requires a spec. -ogra

Please use the status field to track the progress of those tasks even though there is no specification; this way they will not be forgotten -mdz
