Jumpstart is perfect for what you want to do, check the documentation
(Advanced Installation guide).  The normal case of a Jumpstart install
does exactly what you want, the setup scripts copy the CDROM files to a
local area on your boot server and the client systems load their OS onto
their disks however you like.
