I think wireless installs would be a huge win.

Even if we can't get a BIOS that can boot wirelessly, I am wondering
whether we could enable wireless installs by shipping the laptop with a
minimal system (just a kernel and an initrd) that would download the
real kernel and initrd over the wireless network and then kexec those to
do the install.
