Sorry maybe jumping off-topic...
I have really good experience with PXEboot after switching image 
download from ftptp to gpxe.
My image has 104MB, and via tftp IIRC it is downloaded about about 
15-20sec (GB LAN).
With gPXE on HTTP is 2,5-3sec on AMD X2 4400 and 5 sec on ION. Of course 
another 30-40 sec is standard OS boot from image.
But by using S3 it is possible to reduce "back-to-live" FE time to 
2-3sec (assuming You are not restarting mythfrontend process).
