I wrote a patch 'init-1-netboot.diff.gz' to the init script of the initial ramdisk to add booting the system rescue cd over a nfs exported filesystem or a cifs/samba share.
The kernel and the initial ramdisk are loaded as usual with e.g. etherboot.
The sysrc.dat file is mounted and not downloaded to speed up booting from the network.
Some files from the cdrom have to be copied to the initial ramdisk ('filelist').
The README file explains how to patch the initial ramdisk of the system rescue cd.
See http://hepp.gmxhome.de/download/systemrescuecd/1.1.1 for the files.
Post there if you plan to contribute to this SystemCd
