Well, except that hard links are filesystem specific, you can't cross
filesystem boundaries with one.

Also, depending on design, you probably actually want a single RO
filesystem to serve as / for all diskless clients, and have smaller
per-client RW volumes (like /etc) or per-user RW volumes (so each machine
is identical and everyone can use each machine).
