RouterNodeSetup

Introduction

Melbourne Wireless will come to depend on routing nodes, which tie the mesh together, forwarding traffic on behalf of other peers and clients. Fortunately it is readily possible to do this with PC class platforms running software like FreeBSD, Linux and even Windows NT & XP.
However networking is a complex thing, and the configuration has to be "just so" or things tend to not work.

A Linux Routing Node Distribution

Looking for candidate distributions to suit the following. The Linux Router Project derived External linkLEAF distributions seem to come close... leveraging these projects should result in something ideal.

Initially, we plan to use a bootable cd, that asks a detailed questionaire on its first boot, and stores the config options on a floppy/HD/compactFlash/whatever
