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.

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.
