Noob question UI choice while network booting.
« on: October 29, 2011, 09:51:53 pm »
Hi all,

been following this project for some time and have setup lmce in virtual box many times and now want to move it to phisical hardware. I have a sever rack in my garage where I want to setup my core and have a dell 1950 server that should meet all the specs for a decent core apart from havning a decent gfx card as its a 1U high server. I then want my DMs to network boot off the core. My question is this, If the core its self doesn't have the gfx card to be able to run the full UI 2. Will the machines that network boot off it (which have decent nvidia gfx cards) be able to set the UI on an individual basis or will they default to the settings on the core.

I need to know if I should change the machine that will be the core.

Cheers
