I've got a question about USB cdrom devices in an i386 architecture.
Basically, at work we use OpenBSD as the O/S on our server product that
does things like billing and web caching in certain hotels we install.
Since the servers we use are 1U rackmounts, they only come with the
Installing these is kind of a pain, because I have to crack them open
individually and connect an IDE cdrom (or a floppy). If I bought a USB
cdrom or something similar, could that be used to boot from? These are
Intel PIII server boards, rather new, I dont know the exact model number
Secondly, does anyone have a good resource for using PXE? I noticed the
boards have an option tob oot from the network, I was thinking maybe I
could rig something up to boot the openbsd install program, and then FTP
off a server in-house.
Any ideas that may be able to help me out?
