I have done it to install a cluster of PC without cdrom, via network.
You need a floppy with "kernel level autoconfiguration" active.
When kernel wake up, it ask on the net it's ip/netmask to a DHCP server.
Then it mount / via NFS
After that, you can run any script to install debian on your HD
(I have done a script that fdisk/mkfs/tar x debian.tgz automaticaly)
