A goal for woody is to make dbootstrap get the answers to it's questions
from a config file. This could include using bootp, which would handle the
network configuration. The only real problem is an intelligent and sane
way to automatically (using some generic base values) partition the
system. Solaris jumpstart has some interesting stuff for this, but I'm
pretty sure you can expand on it, since it does have some drawbacks.
