Right, archiso-pxe-server, that's the thing Greg should be looking at.
It's written by Gerardo, who did also most or even all of the related work in archiso.
it uses NBD (which is surprisingly simple to set up).
I believe I once set this up and was very easy and worked nicely.
(unless you already have a dnsmasq that should stay up, last time i checked this script invoked a new dnsmasq instance with some custom settings, which could give issues if you already use dnsmasq)
