BootManage Administrator ::: Skill Levels

The rating system is broken down into five categories. The lower the number, the easier the task (1 = easy, 5 = hard). The general knowlegde section is required for all levels.

General Knowledge

It is expected that everybody interested in using the BootManage Administrator have the necessary skills to install a client in a TCP/IP based network running BOOTP, DHCP, TFTP and PXE. There is also the requirement to be able to work with a PC that has a Microsoft Windows (NT 4, 2000, 2003, XP) operating system installed, and the knowledge how to install a Windows application. The use of an FTP client, text editor, Linux, SQL or other DB system may be required. It is also necessary to have access to the Windows operating system installation CD-ROM.
