After you create the thinstation.nbi, do you also have to copy the packages
associated with this thinstation.nbi to the tftp server?
My thinstation.nbi is quite a bit smaller than the pre-packaged version,
which is weird, since I selected most of the drivers for everything. The
thinstation.nbi is only 6.7 Mb, so it shouldn't be past the 16 MB limit, or
is that limit set after the file is decompressed?
Where can I find the best documentation for this process? I am having
difficulty finding stuff to read.

I have been working with the Thinstation software for a couple weeks. I
downloaded the pre-built version for the Windows implementations and after
some reading of the archives and some work, everything is working fine.
The pre-built doesn"t seem to have support for redirecting info to the
floppy or usb mass storage, and this is definitely something we need access
to. So I downloaded the regular version of Thinstation, and edited a
build.conf file and ran a build. I then take this thinstation.nbi file and
put it where the pre-built thinstation.nbi file was. ( I renamed the
I boot the client, it gets an IP, pulls the thinstation.nbi file off the
server, and then I get Issue Reset. It doesn"t go anywhere from that.
