This is a tutorial that explains how to create a puppet client and register it with a puppet master. We will start by launching a new Linode instance running 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). Once the instance is running we will install puppet and register it with an existing puppet master.
Launch a new instance
In this tutorial we are going to walk through launching a virtual instance using the services provided by Linode. You should be able to apply the initial steps to your cloud provider with a fair dose of common sense.
