Net booting is very easy if using our liveCD,
the installer has a menu point on front page for setting host up as netboot server.
(setup can be gleaned from installer files)

diskless(7) describes operation nicely, with pointers to e.g. pxeboot(8).

Btw: Will check that this still works after kernel & modules moved to /boot.
