Package: diskless

I installed the diskless package on a server and succeded to boot a 
diskless client successfully;

I successfully managed to start my diskless client (through PXE and 
recompiled kernel with appropriate options).The root file system is 
mounted as expected  by the client though NFS. On my server, I did not 
chage the defaults proposed by both commands 'diskless-newimage' and 
'diskless-newhost' at installation time:
- the root file system for myclient to NFS mount is : 
- the customized '/etc' '/tmp' and '/var' directories for my diskless 
client (with IP adress being are stored in : 

However, during the client boot, the cutomized directories ( 
/var/lib/diskless/default/ and 
/var/lib/diskless/default/ are not mounted as /etc, /var, 
/tmp). I believe they should.

I realize this is due to the fact that I boot I mount the NFS root file 
system with read-write option. I do this through my SYSLINUX/PXE boot 
script (otpion 'rw' of append insctruction in the PXE file below :

default diskless

label   diskless
        kernel bzImage
        append rw root=/dev/nfs 
nfsroot= ip=dhcp

label   local
        localboot 0

When I mount the NFS root file system read-only, then the customized 
directories are mounted for my diskless client as expected.

I do not see where this kind of logic is implemented. I believe the 
customized directories should be mounted even if the root file system is 
mounted read-write.

diskless has been removed from Debian due to bugginess and lack of
maintenance.  Similar functionality is provided by lessdisks.  For
