# I installed jumpstart on a Ultra server yesterday and I am now able to
# jumpstart any machine in the network. It automatically determines the
# timezone and such so taht I dont have to answer any questions...

# want. I dont have one running on the network. I am using just
# Does anyone know how to automaticlly answer that question in the

The answerbook fails to mention the 'ns=server:none(255.255.255.0)'
If you wanted to do this from a nis server, you would have this instead:
or for NIS+:
Thanks to the following sysadmins deserving of a large raise:
