It looks like I will have to be using a external USB cdrom drive then.

From the Apple literature:
Mac OS X systems can automatically discover boot images on
the server using an extension to the BootP and DHCP protocols
called Boot Server Discovery Protocol (BSDP). This enables
you to take a new computer out of the box and configure it to
your specifications in minutes. Just plug in the power cord
and Ethernet cable and hold down the "n" key. NetBoot in Mac
OS X Server takes care of the rest. The system boots,
connects to the network, finds the default NetBoot disk
image, and starts up fully configured.
Here is a description about the process: http://www.bombich.com/
There is no RFC that I'm aware of which describes BSDP, or how to
write your own BSDP server. Neither am I aware of any FOSS
Hope this helps.
