Why is that the only option ? it takes 6 seconds to write the /tftpboot/ 
  specs. Given a set of decent docs, anyone can just do that.

I am also not sure what you mean by there is very slim support for it. 
Its in very wide scale use in many thousands of places, there is a very 
active community behind it and there are a lot of CentOS users using it 
as well. How did you work out there was very slim support for it ?
