+UDPcast is a file transfer tool that can send data simultaneously to
+many destinations on a LAN. This can for instance be used to install
+entire classrooms of PC's at once. The advantage of UDPcast 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 just 2.
