> [discussion about LTSP and PXE and Etherboot and wired ethernet adapters]
Why is PXE necessary for LTSP? From the LTSP web site, I get the
impression that it can run inside several distros, including Fedora and
Debian. There are Fedora- and Debian- derived distros for XO.
XO's OFW firmware can load kernels and initramfs's over either USB
Ethernet adapters or the built-in wireless, using TFTP or HTTP or NFS.
It's also possible to boot diskless with root on NFS. In fact that's
how the manufacturer runs their Linux-based burn-in diagnostics.
What you can't do is run an absolutely stock distro, because you need a
kernel that supports the OLPC-specific hardware.
