No documentation on the PXE installer

Priority: normal Milestone: Fall 2009 Release
Component: documentation Keywords:
Cc: Fixed in version:
Upstream bug:


The "Installing Debathena" page should talk about the PXE installer for people on campus. This should include things like "no really, you don't want debathena-cluster". Maybe some other stuff.

I originally started doing this at http://debathena.mit.edu/pxe and have a draft there (that URL is not linked from anywhere).

This documentation seems fine. I'd like to see http://debathena.mit.edu/install reorganized with a link of installation options at the top (i.e. install-debathena.sh with big RECOMMENDED banners all around it, manual installation, live CD installation, PXE installation), and then have each non-install-script install method on its own page from there, but that's not this ticket.

For now, I think linking to this from /install or /advanced-installation is fine.

The screenshots also look like they might be out of date - Athena 10 is mentioned in several different places.

Updated text and screenshots to say "Debathena". I agree with Evan on the website re-org and will implement that.
