    Network booting into Ghost

    I wish to be able to network boot our clients and then connect to a ghost session to download an image.

    Does anyone know of a simple and free bit of software that will allow us to do this? We're relatively new to network booting, but I assume some form of service needs to be running on a server which the clients will detect, boot from, then run a command accordingly.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to the simplest way of doing this?

    Which version of ghost are you using. Our's (ghost 7) included 3Com boot services which does this.

    If you don't have licences for ghost you can't use it ghost is not free but there are alternatives.

    We're using Ghost 8. It does come with 3com boot services, but this doesn't seem to work for us. Possibly because of its age and the relatively new hardware we're trying to boot from it.
