I used to be able to install 10.6 Server remotely via ARD (blank username, first 8 characters of the serial number as password), but the functionality seem to have been removed by Apple on 10.7 (client version, the only once that can be downloaded and burned/imaged to a dvd/usb). The installer gets an IP but a quick port scan doesn't show any open ports; any advice?

As long as it's a 2009 Mac Mini or newer, you can use the Remote Install Mac OS X tool. You'll need to get it from a 10.6 installation.
