Found this via Inforworld today:http://www.openqrm.org/

At my current job, I have spent a fair amount of time developing a somewhat similar system, which I call the "Host Database". It stores information about servers and network gear, storing all the info in a Postgresql backend, with a Mason frontend. We use it to keep track of servers, their associated disks, network interfaces, and other related info but it can also catalog network subnets, track switch port connections and vlans, serve DNS (via MyDNS), and spit out kickstart files for automated installation (among other things). I'd love to open-source the thing.

I may spend some time with OpenQRM, and see if there are any tips I can take away from it. It appears with OpenQRM you can create custom boot images which can be served out to machines via PXE, allowing you to essentially build a diskless cluster.
