If you have, or can set up an NFS server, you can drop the CD or DVD iso
images in a directory under it and do an nfs install. If your USB boot
setup lets you get a command prompt by hitting a key as it starts you
may be able to use 'linux askmethod' to get the net install options to
show. Otherwise you can use the bootdisk.img.
