I've got some 40 meg hdd's on my shelf (think they're SCSI). I'll send you one if you pay up front. I think they're about 8 lbs :)

But seriously, I've never had an issue with this. You can get a cf card or (possibly SD card) controller you can boot from or possibly a new usb card for that. However I've only done this once. In the industry, we use fc or iscsi hba cards that allow booting off of a san. And pxe works in a pinch (or for clients if you were smart about what and how you purchase).
