short long story
we have managed to round up 50 hp ze4500's and linksys wireless adapters for each one. we want to donate them to group that will use them as Tor machines. The will be dual boot xp an hopefully Slacko. after testing 25 or so distros Slacko and its brothers and sisters in some fashion we the only ones that could set up the wireless card without blinking or crying. These machines are meant to be used for email and web browsing only and will have only a word processor and graphic viewer installed. someone gave us a stripped down XP they did just for this purpose. However as a member of our group is fond of saying when you buy a car leave the dealer if they ask do you want tires with it.
The question is can someone supply me with the method of making Slacko booting up without the use of a usb or a disk. I am from the old school of it can be lost or broken it will be the wireless cards will be attached to the machines hopefully the power supplies will not be lost. so what code do we need or what program do we need to make a boot record. I am impressed I have been attempting to to Linux for years this is the first time i got past the install without throwing the PC or laptop out of a window or smashing it to bits. These machines must be goof proof and idiot proof and work on the kiss principle. any help would be appreciated. I am keeping it short and i hope you get the message about the need and the design.
