I now boot my PXE Clients using gPXE and sanboot (iscsi). Using the MBE
as the iscsitarget.
With 10.04 and later, once you have the iscsitarget and dhcp server
configured on your server, boot your "slave" pc with a Ubuntu 10.04 (or
later) *server* cdrom/dvd and install directly to the iscsi image, no
messing around modifying boot scripts or anything. Once installed,
install mythbuntu-desktop and your good to go.
This way, each machine has its "own hard drive", and are managed just
like any other PC with a hard drive.
