My only comment there would be I do like xCAT, especially with statelite 
settings so you can PXE boot a RAM disk on the nodes but still set up 
parts of the image that are writeable over NFS from the management node 
for persistent storage.  Tends to help if you have IPMI on the nodes 
though (remote power control etc).


Best of luck!
