cool stuff.

could use a bit more clarity.
for example
wget .. $trapezium/...

and explain why the remove is needed. maybe only do the remove if aif exited with exitcode 0.

also why the sleep 60 ? 

what happens with specified nodes that have 'install:no'? it boots the archiso images normally?

where do you specify which MAC adresses to bind to which configs? (~ "node$num" hostnames?)

what happens when a machine boots which is not recognized?

how can you send different scripts to different machines?

rather then replying everything in this mail, just write the README directly ;)
