Live OS Network Boot through Wi-Fi

We using debian-live ([url removed, login to view]) - based thin client OS in our network, and we need to have ability of booting our clients though Wi-Fi instead of booting through wired LAN (like we have now). After some research we decided to create small initrd which can connect to Wi-Fi access point and mount remote folder for boot from it. Debian-live build already include initrd which can mount remote folder through wired LAN with NFS protocol.

Probably, client should boot from cd or pendrive first, and then boot initrd OS with Wi-Fi support, then connect to Wi-Fi access point and mount remote folder for boot actual live OS from this folder.

I've done this exact thing before over LAN. You need to use gPXE (formerly etherboot) which will allow you to specify a live CD image to boot over the network. Quite nifty actually. HOWEVER your biggest constr More
