CHAPTER 1 Overview
Server - a standalone machine that can serve others, e.g. with disk space via NFS; can boot diskless workstations; can serve different architectures.
Dataless - has minimal disk space for systems programs and swap space only, shares file space via NFS mount of server disk space.
Diskless - has no disk; requires server for boot (via network), swap, and all program and file space.
AutoClient - similar to a diskless client except that it uses a local disk for caching. Requires a 100 MB local disk.
