I set up a diskless system 18 months ago on an Epia sp13000 and it goes
just fine - and quiet.

The network bandwidth is a non-issue as you are either loading
programs/libraries (only once at start of day) or accessing data, i.e.
neither being at the same time.

It means I can concentrate my storage in a sturdy raid5 LVM2
multi-partition array on the server :-)
