Hi all,

I'd like to stop installing xen on each of my servers.
I was thinking that booting them off the network via pxe and then
booting the domU's on iSCSI would be an idea.

Does that sound right?

Basically yes, but i don't if/how you can handle the multiple kernel
images needed for xen to boot.

This is exactly what virtualIron does - maybe you find some hints in
their free Source code.
