Definitely net-booted.  

Thanks for the recommendation.I setup lessdisks this weekend and was
impressed with the results.  I expect that the remote office  machines
will be net-booted off the remote office server.  Updates could
be pushed to the machine overnight via rsync and clients remotely
rebooted to the new version.
