I am *really* hoping that someone would tell me how to do
diskless nodes plus channel bonding.
Adding an additional machine to act as DHCP server and 
tftp server is out (for me) because I don't don't have 
any free ports left on my switch.

Can you really set up eth0 so that it is both bonded and unbonded?
How do you do this?  What is this eth0:0 thing?  (I display my ignorance)
