I'm wondering if a ubuntu pc can act as a server to provide the ability to network boot ubuntu's live cd to other system(s) in the network.
To make my question more clear:
The initial software to be loaded is loaded from a
serveron the network; for TCP/IP networks this is usually done using the Trivial File Transfer Protocol. The server from which to load the initial software is usually found by broadcasting or multicasting a Bootstrap Protocol or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol request. Typically, this initial software is not a full image of the operating system to be loaded, but just part of it - enough for the operating system to start and then take control of the booting process, and continue booting over the network.
I want to make one ubuntu pc as the "server" and enable the other pc's to be able to boot from a ubuntu image I host on the server
