Thanks for all your replies.  Our current direction appears to be one
of modifying the FreeBSD bootonly ISO to perform installs and load it
from gPXE as follows...

The menu will appear something like (from memory, syntax may be wrong):

kernel memdisk
imgargs memdisk raw iso
initrd http path to the ISO

Once we have it tested and implemented, I'll likely blog the subject

Take care
