> 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).
