Diskless nodes: the bootdisk

and I was needing to do its run through of floppies,
when every node would have a floppy with its kernel
image inside of the floppy (I cannot use dhcp/tftp to
get the kernel images from the server, because the
departament that this cluster have been build it's
already belong of a internal network, with it's

needed to be mounted on the server, through nfs  (the
ready-only directories), and in ram (ramdisks) the
read-write directories..

this? The /etc/fstab file? I have seen some shell
scripts,  but one thing that has made me confuse it's
if the directory /etc need to be the same of the
