AFAIK, but never tried, you can mount a root filesystem via NFS.
Another option would be to install your VM's with an automatic
installation tool.
In this area I use ( and develop) FAI (needs a Debian Server ATM), and
there are some users installing their Xen VM's with FAI. I never did
that myself, but I want to work on that in the workshop I announced here
