Ooops! So, what I meant to say here (before I was interrupted
and then lost my chain of thought) is that diskless clients don't
pose the same problems for security threats. If someone does break
in, that needs to be fixed, but they can't leave behind any
surprises as there is (usually) no non-volatile storage. Fix the
hole then reboot and get a clean file-system image from the server.
