[mythtv-users] Multiple diskless frontends off one image

Greetings all

I want to add another frontend, a second diskless Ztoac ION m/b. I'm
currently doing a diskless network boot (keeps the noise down) and would
like to do the same again for the new frontend which is identical, in
hardware terms anyway, but without having to maintain another 2G of image
on the main backend/server. Disk space is not the issue, keeping things in
sync is!!

I would guess I'd need to have separate /var, /tmp and maybe /etc and
/home directories with /usr, /sbin, /opt, /mnt and /lib as common ones.
Does this sound reasonable and just how do I do it? (I'm sure someone here
has done it before!!). Something has to get the mounts in the right order
during boot so I'm hoping this is a wheel I don't have to re-invent :)
