A web based GUI for managing PXE boot and optionally managing DHCP service. Also supports creating and serving Kickstart and preseed scripts. This provides a client install in one click. This is a generic framework created to work with anything that's PXE bootable. Adding new hosts can be done via "PXE enrollment" where the client PXE boots to enroll into OneClickKick. Easily integrated with existing naming sources such as NIS and LDAP for central lookup of host and mac address information. OneClickKIck can also be integrated with FreeIPA (www.freeipa.org) to allow adding and modifying hosts directly in IPA.
Portable System for installing many Linux Distros on to a Pen drive
This project provides a Live DVD for the multibootusb program, for installing multiple Linux Distros on to a single Pen drive and able to boot from it. This makes the program ready to use on the go on any system without installing it. It is faster to start this system through VirtualBox, then the DVD Drive. This .iso file can also be written on to a small dedicated pen drive ( ~ 1 GB ) through this DVD's multibootusb program and further used for writing linux images on to other pen drives ( not on the same ! ) thereby making everything portable. Note: Click "+ Other Locations" on the file manager for opening local disks, while browsing for images to write through this dvd's multibootusb program. Also note that the pen drive needs to be in fat32 format for proper booting. if in other formats, for eg. ntfs, you can use the GParted program that is in this dvd, to reformat it to fat32 ( will cleanup all data ). Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjQRkISnHQ4 before formatting.
