My tests show that NFS is faster than local disks for the 3100.  (Given a
sufficiently slow NFS server the opposite is also true.)

Run them diskless.

I've got a bunch of 'em racked up running like that.  (I do have local
disk for swap and data but its not necessary.)

If you just want to use 'em as Xterminals this is probably the way to go
