I'm quite happily running FreeBSD-5.1 on a diskless VIA system: just cpu, ram, ethernet, screen: it netboots then mounts partitions from my main machine via NFS. Very nice: zero noise, reliable, no sysadm duties. The diskless support for 5.1 is really quite nice; man diskless. In the past, I've run NetBSD diskless on Sun IPX and ELC systems. I suspect that if the SunRays do a PXE boot then they can be given addresses by DHCP, boot files via TFTP, and filesystems via NFS -- just like any other diskless client. I don't know if FreeBSD runs on SunRay's CPU, however. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
