Yup, and they do.  There are plenty of ways to do this: internal SD 
card, usb boot, pxe boot, etc....  I prefer this because I don't need to 
maintain a boot drive, the nodes boot from the exact same image, and I 
have gobs of memory so the running system can run in a ramdisk.  This 
also makes it possible to boot my nodes with failed disks/controllers 
which makes troubleshooting easier.   I basically made a live CD distro 
that has everything I need.

Thanks, I'll take a look.
