smbfs as root fs

I'm currently trying to write a test installer that is capable of
extracting the linux distribution (one .tar.gz) to a client computer.
However, I want this .tar.gz (and libc as well as tar and gzip etc.)
to be exported from a samba _or_ NT server...

So has anybody hacked the kernel to accept a smbfs-root filesystem?
Otherwiese I'd have to hack it in myself;)
