Diskless Remote Boot in Linux in short DRBL is an open source environment to to manage GNU/Linux operating system deployment. Imagine the time required to install GNU/Linux on 40, 30, or even 10 client machines individually. DRBL will allow you to configure all of your client computers by installing just one server machine. DRBL uses PXE/etherboot, NFS, and NIS to provide services to client machines, so you do not have install GNU/Linux on the harddrive of the clients. Once the server is ready to be a DRBL server, then the client machines can boot via PXE/etherboot (diskless). "DRBL" does NOT touch the harddrive of the clients, so other Operating Systems (for example, M$ Windows) installed on your client machines will not be affected. This may be important in a phased deployment of GNU/Linux, where users still want to have the option of booting to Windows and running Office. DRBL allows you to be flexible in your deployment of GNU/Linux. Harddrives are optional for a DRBL client. The harddrive is just another moving part to fail or create more noise. If a harddrive is present, then the client can be configured to use it as swap space, while GNU/Linux is installed and configured on the centralized boot server. Using the DRBL centralized boot environment, you can save a lot of time by configuring the client settings at the boot server. This gives the system administrator more control over what software configurations are running on each client..
