LTSP Boot Across Subnets
So how can*BKO*install Debian on my ancient, 256MB P4 Micron in under an hour over the internet, across a strict firewall? *
A: They use HTTPFS booting over HTTP with the small 1 MB gPXE boot CD, boot USB, or boot floppy.*Fuse rocks.
BKO does have an entry for Ubuntu on its internet boot server. You might find teachers willing to give Edubuntu a whirl if they could "set it and forget it" for an overnight install.*
Very mindful of your bandwidth,

The short answer is 'no', but everything except dhcp would probably
work if you could set up a route to the other network. I guess it
would get slow even if you add just a few clients, unless you have a
strong connection between your routers.
