Re: root-on-nfs with network interfaces that require config (eg. wireless)

        I have a few systems I'd like to run 'disk'-less with root on

        etc.).  Do we have a 'standard' way of handling these sorts
        of situations?  Is there a better way than memory-disk which
        sets up the network, mounts the filesystem and chroots to the
        NFS root?  And if not, is there a nice way to boot to multi-
        user using the memory disk trick?

Have you looked at sysctl init.root? This is the best way to chroot to a new root and restart init so that you can boot multi-users
