One additional feature I'd copy from JumpStart is centralising the
config files. For those not familiar with JumpStart, ther's a rules
file that is basically a table of identifiers against configuration
profiles,. Identifiers can be things like IP address, ethernet
address, architecture, size of the root disk, etc. etc. It's nicer
'cos you don't need to have a different boot procedure for different
types of install client, i.e. you'd have just the one boot floppy on a
typical PC, or execute just the one network boot command on machines
that can boot off the net.
