If we do this, can we please kill the mfsroot image? Having the files actually in the ISO image may be a bit less space efficent, but it should make the image a lot more PXE friendly. It's currently possiable to boot a system by pointing NFS and tftp at a mounted CD, but some things are weird because / ends up being the MFS root instead of the CD so you have to do an NFS install. It does work though. -- Brooks P.S. A totally awsome feature to add to the CD/DVD would be enough server support to boot a CD and hit a "make me an install server" button and have a PXE server running. -- Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
