di-netboot-assistant is a tool to download and extract Debian-Installer
netboot images. It's especially useful if you want to download multiple
netboot image, since it builds a top menu, so you can select the image
at boot time (on amd64, i386 and ia64).
Currently, it supports amd64, i386, ia64, alpha, hppa and sparc clients.
syslinux and elilo are needed if you plan to use the "top menu".
