SB has used the Ubuntu Netbook Remix for testing... it's wicked cool.
But, we haven't tried to deploy it in anyway, yet.


I assume PXE isn't an option, but I'll state the obvious anyway (it's
what I'm good at)... why not use PXE and/or Netboot and cut the need to
use anything other than a patch cable?  Clonezilla would work nicely for
this as well.   All the Netbooks I've used can PXE boot.

I'm working on our first set of netbooks.  One of the obstacles I needed
to overcome is being able to image the netbooks, without a CD.

I found the following open source utility that takes an ISO cd image
and creates a bootable USB from it.  Works really well with PING (Linux
on the ISO), the program runs on Windows.
