This is guide with screenshots, howto install Fedora (currently Fedora 13) with gPXE and BFO (boot.fedoraproject.org). BFO combines a series of recent technologies to produce a new boot stack. The glue that holds everything together is gPXE. Boot method is similar to PXE Boot. It uses very small images (iso, floppy, disk) to bootstrap a machine that then contacts a remote server for boot information.
Why Should Use BFO Instaed of Normal Installer Image?
The BFO downloads are very small and once you have them, you’ll rarely have to download more. Even as more versions of Fedora come out, you just boot from your iso and they will appear. Users with fast internet connections will have the best experience with BFO. They basically replace having to regularly download large CD/DVD ISO images and burn them to disk. gPXE supports following techniques HTTP, DNS, TFTP, AoE, iSCSI, bzImage, COMBOOT, ELF, Multiboot, PXE, PXEXT.
