Cobbler is a network install server. Cobbler supports PXE, virtualized
installs, and reinstalling existing Linux machines. The last two modes
use a helper tool, 'koan', that integrates with cobbler. Cobbler's
advanced features include importing distributions from DVDs and rsync
mirrors, kickstart templating, integrated yum mirroring, and built-in
DHCP/DNS Management. Cobbler has a Python and XMLRPC API for
integration with other applications. There is also a web interface.
