I think that another way could be useful to you: I installed my own server
through QEMU (neither remote console nor user-provided boot media available on
this cheap server).
The notes were thrown there: http://fgudin.sdf-eu.org/QEMU_Install

I'm still trying to think of a better way, now we've got an initrd mecanism,
but it's still food for thought to me.
