UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a
local net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of
PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever)
is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer
to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a
busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also
be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be
used for other purposes than just system installation.
