The ALE Central presentation for
Thursday, February 8th will be:

Fixing Computers with
SYSLINUX and PXELINUX

— “Help me! My windows broke and it can’t boot up!” —
Are these the words that haunt you every day?
Don’t you wish there was an easier way to diagnose
and repair computers than to haul about a hefty
stack of CD-ROM disks?

Join Brian MacLeod as he explores two options using tools
from the SYSLINUX package by H Peter Anvin. Learn how
to use SYSLINUX to make a USB drive with several useful
tools that will get you into (and clean) nearly any computer.
See how PXELINUX can provide you the same functionality
and keep you from carrying anything at all (so long as you
can access your local network).

Bio:
Brian MacLeod is an Enterprise Systems Administrator at
Georgia Gwinnett College. Since 1998, he has worked for
Georgia educational institutions as “that computer guy” and
has tickered with Linux since 1999. Currently, he serves as the
Linux Administrator at GGC and continues developing tools
for the tech support folks so that they, too, will never have to
haul around a stack of CD’s again.
