I agree.  I think NFS is more straightforward than the HTTP and FTP
options.  Any of these network installation methods should work fine
for a class of 50, let alone 14.  Of course, that depends on the speed
of your network and how fast you want them to finish.  :)

I'd definitely recommend "ro" instead of "rw", because no NFS client
should *ever* need to write anything to your images directory, and
"rw" just opens up the possiblity of corrupting something by accident.

Also note that 'exportfs' by itself will tell you what NFS exports you
currently have on your server.  Here's my server at home:
socrates ~ $ exportfs

Interesting; I didn't realize you could just put the ISOs in the
directory.  I thought you had to copy all the actual files off the
ISOs and into the exported directory...I think it used to be that way,
and I guess I've been doing it the "hard way" ever since way back
when.  :)
