Is it possible to install Ubuntu 10.04 to an iSCSI target and boot from it?

I'm thinking about a diskless computer, of course with Etherboot placed on a floppy.

Do live examples exist?

If you want a truly diskless environment, I suggest you use an HBA (HOST BUS ADAPTER). IntelPRO1000 is a cheap network card that I use for iSCSI remote target booting. You could use a small drive to bootstrap an iSCSI session with, but it would be more trouble than it's worth.

Yes and yes. A blow-by-blow install using OpenSolaris ZFS targets can be found at:
