I rebuilt a NetWare 6.5 server at home this weekend; replacing it with SLES 9.

What should have been an hour or so turned into a fun half-day – the CD-ROM on the server was flaky; SLES 9 CD1 booted; every other CD turned into just unreadable errors.

In the end I installed over ftp from another server – I should have done this much much earlier – I keep a server just for this purpose (AutoYaST, ZENworks Imaging etc).

In the end I was very pleased with another over-the-wire installation; it’s been a few months since I last had to do this; and this time for a ‘real’ server of my own.
