Windows Server 2008 PXE Ubuntu non netboot
Dear Forum Members,
I've read a tutorial on a site how to deploy Ubuntu over an network by using pxelinux in windows 2008 deployment Services. (link) I was excited it worked with the netboot version.
The only downside I experienced was how the netboot version searched the internet mirrors for the files Ubuntu needed to install.
My question is: Is it possible to deploy a full Ubuntu live cd over my network (or using my server as mirror).
Thanks in advance,

Never mind, found the answer in the comments:
You can do this by having a copy of the full install version of Ubuntu hosted by IIS on the same server as WDS. Then, when the setup asks for a mirror to choose just point the installer to http://WDSServer/VirtualDirectory. You should find more info on this in the Ubuntu help site. They will probably recommend apache as a webserver but IIS is fine for this purpose
