Yes, it can be used, but I know that there has been some trouble with
bootparams and NFS export for diskless workstations under Linux.
I think that the Sun3 people have good knowledge about how to make
a Linux box work as server for diskless workstations. Actually,
Sun3 uses exactly the same way to boot diskless except for the initial
MOP loading of boot.

It would be very good if some Linux guy could try to install this
and document every step needed, so that it can be put up on the FAQ.
