[Fedora-livecd-list] Boot over NFS/PXE

Hi all,
I need to boot a livecd on some hard disk less clients. I tried to use
livecd-iso-to-pxe, but in my case it unacceptable to load the whole iso
into initrd (the iso is not small).
I made a custom livecd adding dracut-network package, I mounted
squashfs/root image, exported with nfs, and I've tried to boot the clients
with root=nfs: selinux=0, but Fedora gives
me many errors because it can't write on it.
I found this old thread
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.livecd/4261 but it
doesn't work for me.
Is there a way to get a livecd behaviour with this nfs directory? Or can I
combine the isolinux.cfg livecd options with
(where it could found the iso or the mounted iso)?
I'm using dnsmasq with its internal tftp server, which gives vmlinuz0 and
initrd0.img (copied from livecd), pxelinux.0 and a configuration file with
the above root=nfs:[...] selinux=0 options.
