I have no programming skills whatsoever, but today I stumbled upon an 
intresting PXE image namely from thinstation.net
It seems you can load this image into a tftp server, point your DHCP to 
that file, and every PXE able computer would boot the thinstation client...

I already tried the LiveCD of thinstation, and this looks very 
promising... if I can make monowall also serve some small files over 
tftp (stored in ram, when booting), it would reduce a computer just 
serving these tftp files...


Maybe the question already has been asked, maybe no-one thought about 
expanding this functionality, but it would be really cool to be able to 
serve small files this way... (i think)


maybe someone can explain me why this isn't intresting, currently I am 
going to fool around with a free tftp server on a Win2003 server... to 
see if I can make it work anyway...
