if you happen to be a Debian user, I happen to have just finished
setting up an Instant Boot Server system for that OS. It is based on a
debootstrapped chroot environment. It sets up all the difficult
DHCP/TFTP/PXE stuff automatically based on a quite simple config file,
and one of the supported boot methods is called "installer", after "Give
me the Debian Installer". It also has support for mounting an NFS root,
by the way.
Contact me off-list if you'd like to try out a copy. I haven't published
it yet because it still needs a Quickstart Guide, which I'll happily
generate dynamically, as it were..;).
