What I needed was a complete hands-off install and reinstall. So my pxe
config boots the installer by default and I used preseed/late-command to
register the client as installed on the server, so that it will create a
special pxeboot config for that machine to boot from the local HD.
Reinstall is then simply removing this special file and rebooting the
client (all done in a script called reinstall).

But this discussion is going quite off-topic for Ubuntu devel, let's
take it to the sounder list or a private mail conversation.
