You might want to check out g4l (use the sourceforge right now, 
since the freshmeat site links to my server at the college, and the T-
1 line has been down for the last 4 hours).

G4L does images using dd, gzip, lzop, bzip, and I added the option 
of using udpcast. I've used it a couple of time, but more often have 
used the udpcast boot disk, since these all have 3com cards. 

Might be easier to boot from the g4l cd, and then run the udpcast 
from the raw / network use menu. 

If someone doesn't come across with a better solution.
