I mentioned this :) Nonetheless, I am willing to work with and test
some CnC bootdisc/image/kickstart if anyone is thinking about this
approach. Even if it's not fully automated command and control or
client/server, perhaps a standard "build" that can at least report in
to a server about what is available from who, all we do is fill in a
"contact" file or something that is scp/ssh/ftp'd to the contest
server. A few scripts could easily send a dmidecode, cat
/proc/cpuinfo/, lsusb/lspci, uname -a (or whatever else applies to
hardware profiling).
Personally I use RH/CentOS/Fedora, but have no issues using
Unbuntu/Mint etc... If it's worth perusing we can start a new thread
along these lines.
