    Hi, I've been reading through the System Image pdf & maybe it's me but a couple of things aren't clear.
    I want to set up diskless clients and allow users to log on to their network home folder using their OD login. Is this possible and where would be a good place to start with instructions on setup?
    thanks, P

    Yes this is possible and supported. A good place to start is the peach tree books Apple recommends for people pursing Apple certification.

    Basically, you set up one computer exactly how you want it, with AD integration all set-up, all the program you want these users to use, etc... Then you make a NetBoot image of that machine. Then you add that image to NetBoot on your server. Then set your macs to boot off that server.
