    11 SURFsara formerly used SystemImager for automatic installation of our machines. Due to new hardware we needed more up to date drivers and GRUB2 support. We thought this could be easily added, but during this process we decided to upgrade all software to the newest levels and replace some software components. The biggest hurdle was detecting of which hardware is in the system ([http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev.html udev]). We believe that SALI is better in detecting which hardware is available in the system than SystemImager.

    1313The main focus for development of SALI is:
    14  - The SALI kernel/initrd contains all kernel modules and software utilities. In SystemImager this software is distributed as a separate package (BOEL binaries).

    1515 - We have switch monolithic installation script to a UNIX like runlevel setup. To avoid kernel panics.
     16 - Support for more installation protocols such as ftp, http, bittorrent
