I think I put in "Zend" as it was familiar to me. They use some system that
sounds like Zend but it isn't. It was at the end of a long school day when
they asked me as the "resident Linux expert" and I was only half listening.
I will gather some more realistic details tomorrow. I think kernel is the
wrong term too. They have a small footprint Linux distro which is compiled
by Novel to support their client distribution. The guys in tech have a
custom partition which is 100MB Linux with xGB for Doze. They boot a machine
on the network using Linux and then join to a Novel server which dumps the
doze partition on top of Linux. When they have a new version of Doze they
can reboot one machine and get into the Linx partition to ghost another doze
partition. I think they want to have a tftp server on the Linux distro (not
kernel) to make it easier in remote schools. I hope that is clearer? As I
write this I can see that I just need to make a new version of the Linux
distro they use with an ftp program included.
Sorry about the misinformation.
