I have some experience on a quite similar field. The entire network is using
the same DHCP server; when the system boots from the network (which is only
allowed with the appropriate credentials af course) a small Linux image is
downloaded and started. 

That image fires up the machine, connects to a PartImage server and places
an image on the file system. The image itself is not tied to a particular
host as all configuration specific to the system is obtained from LDAP or
otherwise.

However, due to the lack of PartImage development speed, I am contemplating
on developing something more robust and flexible, so I am also interested in
hearing from others...
