That would be interesting, I've done this only with the help of a serial
console tunneled through a ssh connection.

You may want to look at the FAI (fully automatic installation), at my
work we are using this to set-up more than 600 computers within about

I don't know how much you have to change to make this work on Ubuntu (it
was initially designed for Debian).
