This is FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) for Linux

		   FAIVERSIONSTRING
		
FAI is a non interactive system to install a Debian GNU/Linux
operating system on a PC cluster. You can take one or more virgin PCs,
turn on the power, and after a few minutes, Linux is installed,
configured, and running on the whole cluster, without any interaction
necessary. Thus it's a scalable method for installing and updating a
Beowulf cluster or a network of workstations unattended with little
effort involved. FAI uses the Debian distribution and a collection of
shell and Perl scripts for the installation process. Changes to the
configuration files of the operating system are made by cfengine,
shell and Perl scripts.

The home page for FAI is

	http://www.informatik.uni-koeln.de/fai/

This release of FAI is tested with the Debian 3.1 release (called
sarge).

FAI is free software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General
Public License, version 2. For more information, see the file
COPYING. There is no warranty, expressed or implied, associated with
this product. Use at your own risk. Please read the file changelog for
changes in new versions of FAI. Comments, bug reports, fixes,
enhancements etc. are welcome. Send them to

	fai@informatik.uni-koeln.de

Please fill out the questionnaire if you finished a projekt using
FAI. I'm looking for short success stories or reports, so new users
can see how others are using FAI in several types of environment.
There's also a mailing list for FAI available. To subscribe to the
mailing list, send a mail to majordomo@uni-koeln.de and put the
command 'subscribe linux-fai' in the body of the mail. Send
contributions to the list to linux-fai@uni-koeln.de. Mails may be
written in english or german. Please send short reports, if you
installed a cluster or some host using fai.

now enjoy FAI and your saved time
