PXE is awesome

For Parted Magic, you can just download the PXE version, drop it in /var/lib/tftpboot, and add an entry to your pxelinux.cfg/default -- it loads the whole root filesystem as its initrd. That's easy enough that it's worth throwing it in there and leaving it "just in case". I don't think one can say the same about deploying NFS...

1) Download the sysresccd cd image.
2) Extract the kernel (rescuecd), initrd (initram.igz), filesystem (sysrcd.dat), and checksum (sysrcd.md5) to a directory under your tftp root. Let's call that directory sysrcd.
3) Add the following to your pxelinux configuration.
menu label Start SystemRescueCD
append initrd=sysrcd/initram.igz boottftp=tftp://your.ip.address/sysrcd/sysrcd.dat
