I updated the wiki last week or so to show how to work around the bugs
in system-config-netboot-0.1.41-1.FC6. I ended up with the whole
system mounted rw, which is not how it's supposed to be, but means I
have a fully working FC6 diskless front end.

So try it with this version, and see what happens.
