    1010 * which kernel and initramfs should the node boot during pxe phases? 
    1111 * what kind of network cards does this node have? 
    12 In the Inventory AM, some of the configuration data is static and configured during the installation process (e.g. the control interface of a node). In contrast some configuration information is gathered via a live inventory collection process where the node is booted into a PRE-OS (pxelinux). While in the PRE-OS scripts on the node collection information about the nodes current configuration (e.g installed disk size, types of wireless cards). 
     12In the Inventory AM, INF_ prefixed configuration data is static and configured during the installation process (e.g. the control interface of a node). In contrast some INV_ prefixed configuration information is gathered via a live inventory collection process where the node is booted into a PRE-OS (pxelinux). While in the PRE-OS scripts on the node collection information about the nodes current configuration (e.g installed disk size, types of wireless cards).
