The current snapshots for the Trisquel 4.0 LTS "Taranis" network
installer can be found here: http://devel.trisquel.info/taranis/

The helper scripts used to rebuild the debian installer packages are
here: bzr branch http://devel.trisquel.info/bzr/netinst

About the network installer:
i386 and amd64 images are available, both in CD iso and disk dump
format. To use the latter just run this command

 dd if=file.img of=/dev/sdX

Being X the matching letter for a -ready to be erased- usb drive. This
method is very useful for netbooks.
The netinstall images can currently be used to install a basic console
Trisquel box, the mini edition or the full desktop environment, all of
them currently in BETA state.

Since the requirements are so low as 32MB ram and 400Mb disk, it will
be the recommended install method for netbooks, old computers and also
servers. The installer allows the usage of LVM and cyphered volumes,
among other advanced features.
