If you use PXE Boot you can also define FAI_FLAGS or ACTIONS in
or in the special file for a group of host or one host. 

default fai-generated

label fai-generated
kernel vmlinuz-install
append ip=dhcp devfs=nomount nfsroot= 
root=/dev/nfs FAI_ACTION=menu debug FAI_FLAGS=sshd,createvt,syslog

So you can also use more than one nfsroot and the PXE Menu for special
