Dear,

"InetBoot for x86&x86_64 liveCD (Debian-Lenny-Beta1/Feora/Ubuntu/KNOPPIX/VMKnoppix)" is released.
  HP: http://openlab.jp/oscircular/inetboot/
  Guide-PDF: http://openlab.jp/oscircular/inetboot/InetBoot080925E.pdf
  Sample CD: http://ring.aist.go.jp/archives/linux/oscircular/iso/inetboot-20080925-us.iso

===============================================================================
The InetBoot is a kind of Internet bootloader, which boots an OS from 
a LiveCD ISO file on the Web. We do not need to burn a CD-ROM for each liveCD.
The sample bootable CD (6.6MB) can boot:
  available x86 LiveCD
    2 types of Debian Lenny Beta1 (KDE, GNOME)
    2 types of Fedora (9,8) 
    3 types of Ubuntu (804, 710, 704) 
    1 types of KNOPPIX(531) 
    1 types of VMKnoppix (Xen: 3.2.1) 
  available x86_64 LiveCD on InetBoot
    2 types of Fedora x86_64 (9,8) 
    1 types of Ubuntu x86_64 (804) 

### gPXE scripts ###
We offered gPXE scripts to boot InetBoot itself from the Internet.
gPXE, which is included syslinux (http://syslinux.zytor.com), is a Network Bootloader.
It can download a kernel and initrd from HTTP server and boot the OS.

=== Exmample to use gPXE scripts on the sample CD-ROM ===
Select "gPXE" at GRUB Menu and Move to shell mode of gPXE (Press "CTL+B" right after GRUB).
Execute the following commands on the shell to boot InetBoot.
     gPXE> dhcp net0
     gPXE> kernel http://www.inetboot.net/gpxe/debian-lenny-kde-beta1
     gPXE> boot
Afhter that the OS, which is designated by the gPXE script, will boot.
We offer the following gPXE scripts.
