While I'm in Syslinux mood: version 3.85 has a full-featured gPXELinux
component, boasting HTTP support (among others).  Image loading over
HTTP is *much* faster than over TFTP.  On the other hand, it requires an
additional HTTP server, and thus probably not worth the hassle for single
shot installations.  It could be useful for testing, though.
