  Not sure about this.

  This would be possible.  All you need to do is configure each 'node'
 machine to boot up with DHCP, etc, and then pull the root filesystem
 over NFS for the domU.

  You might be able to get dom0 over NFS - but if you could do that
 you might as well just use Linux Terminal Server proper ..
