I'm really interested by the netboot installs. I'm also ready to test it
and report success or failure if there is a place where I can get it.

For the livecd, at this time I don't have a working CD drive on the
octane2... But maybe soon if I can plug my old Sun CDROM, and if it will
be working...

Thanks for your answer.
