I've got a machine that's dying, it's a firewall/router and
a lan. I'm going to want to replace it and at the same time i'd like
increase my Linux experience. Thus far i've been working with the
variants and first started out in Slackware. It's becoming clear at
around here that Debian, Gentoo, and Ubuntu, are in demand. I'd like
some experience with one of these.
My problem is the installation. This machine, either in it's test
or in it's permanent role as a router, will not have a monitor and
on it, it's headless with all access via the network, ssh. I was
does either Debian, Gentoo, or Ubuntu have either a text install via
terminal or via ssh? I'm aware of live CD's loading x and software
at least in some cases, but as i said no monitor or keyboard. I was
thinking either passing a boot parameter as in rhel, or modifying
installation media, as in remastering.
I know this is not speakup-specific, but if anyone has an answer
i'd appreciate knowing about it.
