UDPcast is a file transfer tool that can send data simultaneously to many
destinations on a LAN. This can for instance be used to install entire
classrooms of PC's at once. The advantage of UDPcastover 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 just 2.
UDPcast can be started from the included linuxrc boot disk for OS
installations, or from the command line when using it for other purposes.
