Sorry Rich, I only now saw the part of your question where you mentioned you were unable to run AHT. This is the issue of having a system without built in ethernet and optical drives! I'll see if I can figure out another solution for you...

@kim3er: Did you see the other options in that article? Do you have access to a MacBook Air SuperDrive (or other external USB optical drive)?

comment Command-line voice recognition with Mac OS X
Yup, it sure does. Actually I believe what it does is rescans that folder every 20 seconds, converts all filenames to phonetic representations, and adds those to the list of commands it knows about. Personally, I think it's a great design -- nice and simple for the end user!

The / at the beginning of the path is the boot volume. Other hard drives are under /Volumes/

comment Is there an easy way to update a NetBoot image?
We're a mac shop, so the NetBoot setup is really handy because I can Net Boot any mac here to do maintenance on the boot drives. Also, if there's a problem with anyone's OS, they can Net Boot and have a working environment instantly. It was a pain to set up initially, but is really, really useful.
