Default Remote Installation of *BSD


Certainly *BSD can be installed over the network (i.e., NFS, FTP, etc.). But, usually that is precipitated by putting in some sort of boot media - either from flash or disk.

What if you wanted to install *BSD without being physically there. Say, a brand new server is installed and it is in Europe - but you're in New York - and you want to put *BSD on it with a fresh hard drive. Or say that you're data is hopelessly corrupted but the hardware is fine - you need to reinstall *BSD but the server is 3000 miles away. Or say that the server currently has Linux or Windows on it and you want to migrate to *BSD.

Is it possible to remotely install *BSD?
And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
