I was sitting here in my office.  I know sun Microsystems is dabbling with
this, but here it goes anyway.  What is the minimum required to boot a pc?
What is the server supplied the operating system, the hard drive contains
just the kenel image and boot loader and probably a /home directory.
Everything else resides on the server and the "modules" are loaded into
memory as needed.  What's everyone's thoughts? Does anybody know if there is
already a group working on this task? (other than sun)  As  a company goes,
you not only could be an ISP, but, you could lease or rent an operating
system to users.
