hi all,

i'm trying to setup edubuntu as a terminal server with about 8 clients at a local school.  i have the server setup (amd 2.0 ghz opteron) and i'm trying to connect the clients.  they have network boot, but don't have pxe capability.  therefore, i need to use:

http://rom-o-matic.net/5.4.3/


to create a boot disk for them.  the clients ar p200 - p300 computers from gateway and compaq.  i have the mac addresses and i searched for the mfr information and have that, too.

however, i have no clue how to correlate that information to use the Choose NIC/ROM type: on the rom-o-matic.net page.  can anyone help?

also, the instructions at http://www.edubuntu.org/GettingStarted say i need to enable pxe emulation.  does that mean i have to choose the pxe bootstrap loader format option ROM image for Choose ROM output format:?

do i need to set any items in Configure configuration options?

any help is greatly appreciated.  i'm looking forward to giving the kids a whole new and much improved computing experience over their current win98 slow boat to nowhere experience.

tia...
