I'm PXE booting one of my frontends (roughly following
http://www.mythbuntu.org/wiki/network-boot-mythbuntu-diskless), and it
boots in around 30 seconds. Around half of that is the Bios stage etc.
I'm running this on a gigabit network, and before I upgraded the switch
it was a fair bit slower, but still probably under a minute.
The only problem I have with it is that suspend doesn't work properly.
I think that's because the suspend process takes the network down too
soon, and then the root filesystem is unavailable to continue the
process. Other than that it works well.
