Diskless Linux X Terminals
Due to the space limitations of printed media, this article presented a high-level view of how to configure a Linux box to boot diskless and become an X terminal, without going into great detail about the precise implementation. Interested readers are encouraged to download the X Terminal Kit from the author's Web site; it includes shell scripts, Makefiles and READMEs to guide you through the sometimes complicated process. In addition, the software described in this article has been drawn from numerous resources on the Internet, all of which have more detailed information about their particular packages. See the on-line Resources for pointers.
