|Update on the Dell e310|
- Setup network booting
- Changed the boot config for the network boot to automatically boot into the right install after a small timeout
- Disabled the onboard USB controller
- Installed a random PCI USB controller
- Rebooted the target machine
- The installer now netboots, and goes into the kernel with no interaction from the keyboard
- Install like normal

The USB works perfectly with Ubuntu Dapper Drake (the newest version at the time of writing this). More details here.
