di-netboot-assistant is a simple tool to download and extract latest debian installer netboot images.

Unless the -h, --help, -v, or --version option is given, one of the commands below must be present.


install is followed by a repository name desired for installation. The repository name has to be one of those declared in /etc/di-netboot-assistant/di-sources.list. The image will be installed/extracted in the default location (declared in /etc/di-netboot-assistant/di-netboot-assistant.conf).


purge will remove a previously installed d-i netboot image, according to the image name specified.



rebuild-menu will rebuild the to level menu. It's only usefull if you have installed some client images that have such top level menu (like i386, amd64 and ia64). This command takes no argument.
