di-netboot-assistant: Install Debian in your LAN

di-netboot-assistant is a tool to simplify the preparation of files for TFTP net booting. It downloads and extracts the files needed and takes care of organizing them. In addition, it prepares a top level menu for PXElinux and grub-efi, which allows one to choose from all installed netboot images at boot time.

di-netboot-assistant supports preseeding the installer in order to set up systems completely automatically.

The talk shows how di-netboot-assistant can be combined with ansible-pull to install machines in one step from an ansible-playbook.
