Hi all,

I have downloaded the 6.2-RELEASE ISO images, (Disk 1, Disk 2, and Boot Only), and was wondering...

If I use the boot only CD to boot up the new server I am getting, can I use it to:

FDisk and Disklabel the new HD (SAS),
ifconfig the NIC,
Setup a network share (as a client),
Download DUMPS from an other machine,
RESTORE those dumps,

the aim here is to clone a previous machine. So what I guess I am asking is, does the boot only machine give us all the working tools as would a copy installed to the local bood HD?
