Custom disk images exist that are preloaded with several of the software necessary for experimenting with the above hardware. These are the available options, which can be further customized using the 'save' function of OMF framework ( refer to the 'How to save...' tutorial):

Modifying or Freshly Installing NetFPGA/OpenFlow Software
The above images provide a basic software platform to get started with NetFPGA-OpenFlow experimentation. We may also add new images occasionally to update the software with their new stable releases. Beyond that, if you need to do a custom install of NetFPGA/OpenFlow software, you can choose to either build starting from one of the existing images above, or refer to the original instructions from the NetFPGA and OpenFlow development groups online:
- NetFPGA Guide - Software Installation
- OpenFlows page on 'CentOS NetFPGA Install'
- NetFPGA's notes on Ubuntu Compatibility
The following page documents the installation steps for the the base image 'X' on Ubuntu 10.10:
