I have done a pxe boot over the network before and have succefully
gotten linux to load using a tftp server.  This could easily be done
with a linux install program too, but I've never gotten around to doing
this in freebsd before, but I'm certain it's possible.  Though, getting
the pxe boot to work right did take some effort.
