Cobbler is a network install server. Cobbler supports PXE, ISO
virtualized installs, and re-installing 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 XML-RPC API for integration
with other applications.
