A disk-equipped workstation isn't necessarily noisy.  The hard drive
I've got in my desktop PC (well... technically it's a floor-standing PC)
is so quiet I had to put my ear right on top of it to check that I could
hear *something*.  The noisiest part of my floor-standing PC is the
power supply fan, chassis fan, or the CDROM when it's spinning.

So a hard drive is hardly the component to be worrying about for a
silent workstation.  There's no point in having net-boot to eliminate
hard drive noise, when you've got high-RPM fans on your processor, power
supply and case.
