Abstract

The remote install LAN Requester 1.3 panels give the LAN Administrator an interactive means of creating input files for LAN Distribution System (LDS) with on-line help available for each item. When the preprocessing function of remote install is invoked, a series of panels guide the user through creating map files and the bootable diskette. The map files define the environment of the PC to be remotely installed. The bootable diskette is used to initiate a remote install session.

Remote Install LAN Requester 1.3 Panels

       The remote install LAN Requester 1.3 panels give the LAN
Administrator an interactive means of creating input files for LAN
Distribution System (LDS) with on-line help available for each item.
When the preprocessing function of remote install is invoked, a
series of panels guide the user through creating map files and the
bootable diskette.  The map files define the environment of the PC to
be remotely installed.  The bootable diskette is used to initiate a
remote install session.

      The panels are designed with push button entries and may be
selected from the keyboard using the arrow keys.  The ENTER key may
be used to execute each item.  A mouse may also be used to elect and
execute items from the panels. There is a general help panel
available for each panel and one help panel for each item on a panel.
All the panels follow the CUA guidelines.
