[Beowulf] SATA II - PXE+NFS - diskless compute nodes

Not to diverge this conversation, but has anyone had any experience 
using this pxe boot / nfs model with a rhel variant?  I have been 
wanting to do a nfs root or ramdisk model for some-time but our software 
stack requires a rhel base so Scyld and Perceus most likely will not 
work (although I am still looking into both of them to make sure)

Thanks for any help,
Eric Shook
