What does it _mean_ to mount root via NFS over a PPP or SLIP

How do you set up the SLIP or PPP connection?  How do you set up the
kernel line discipline on the right tty?  What does bootp over SLIP or
PPP really "mean," to begin with?

Even forgetting the performance issues, NFS root mounted over SLIP or
PPP seems nonsensical.
