UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a local
net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of PCs at
once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that
udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to
install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a
busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also
be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can
be used for other purposes than just system installation. 

The kernel was upgraded to and busybox was upgraded to 1.5.1. The
code was adapted to Solaris 10 x86 by adding includes and configure
checks. A patch was made to fix parallel make and make DESTDIR=/tmp/xxx
install. gcc4 warnings were addressed.
