What's wrong with NFS?  You can even have root on NFS these days
A quick google found:

My first thought:
Install a workstation as normal, then tar/untar them onto the NFS server.
With some correct seperation of files you should be able to share most
of the filesystem between machines (eg /usr could be readonly).  You
might even be able to make root readonly, but I've never tried that.
