Another idea about netbooting is to include ipxe.lkrn in the desktop CD,
and then use (possibly older) Ubuntu CDs to netinstall any Ubuntu
version (iPXE is x86-only though).
More details in the bug report I've filed for this some months ago:
ipxe.lkrn on the CD will also come handy if one uses local netinst
servers (e.g. I uploaded a script that automates that in
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveCDNetboot#Automation_script) or even for
netbooting LTSP clients if their BIOS doesn't support PXE.
