mythbuntu have a buillt in system for headless clients, you can set it
up from mythbuntu-control-centre (or whatever its called, on your
mythbuntu system go to utilities-setup|setup|mythbuntu

once you have entered your password, choose "Roles"m and make sure
"Diskless server" is selected, it will prompt you to install a package
"mythbuntu-diskless-server" (which will install others as

back in the control centre you can then go to the diskless server
option and set it all up
