Description Jeremy Katz 2007-04-17 16:51:03 UTC
qemu has the ability to do a network boot as of qemu 0.9.0.  It would be nice to
be able to set this up from virt-manager.  Probably not something to put in the
VM creation wizard, but definitely nice to have in the VM details.

Actually I think it would be nice to have it in the VM wizard. On the stage
where you choose the installation source, we've got options for

 - Install from URL
 - Install from CDROM
 - Install from ISO

We can easily add an extra  Install via PXE  option, which will actually be very
usefl when we do remote off-node management.
