The other way to do it (and the way I've been doing it) is to boot a
Live CD distro (Knoppix, Damn Small Linux, etc.), and just "cat" the
EtherBoot image file to the hard disk device. This will, like
eb_to_hd, wipe the HD's MBR and partition table info...but it works.|
I do it as follows:
1.) Copy the EtherBoot file to some floppy, the normal way (e. g. cp <MyFileName> /mnt/fd0).
2.) Boot your Live CD distro on the thin-client-to-be.
3.) Pop that floppy into the thin client and mount it.
4.) "cat /mnt/fd0/<MyFileName> /dev/hda"
Do you GNU?

Hi Fajar, If the thin clients you are wanting to use have a small HD in them you can use ' eb_to_hd ' . Search for this. It is a three step process. Takes about 10 mins or less to do each client. You will need a floppy drive available to ( at least) temporarily hang on each client as this is what the eb_to_hd file copy from. This works for a pretty clean setup as you don't have to worry about kids popping out the cd and throwing it in the trash:) If it will only be adults using these machines the aforementioned setup would prolly be simpler for You. Note : This will of course wipe the HD clean!
