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.

What are you loading on the netbooks for an OS? I am wondering if anyone has tried the Ubuntu Netbook Remix:

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 file
and creates a bootable USB from it.  Works really well with PING (Linux OS
on the ISO), the program runs on Windows.
