Now that the alternate CD has been axed, how can I obtain the PXE boot files formerly found in netboot?

That's the network iso/ tar. I want to create a small local installer with 12.10, about the size of the previous "alternate" iso image. Mirroring the entire 12.10 bit takes about 12 gigs or so. I want to keep the local install server down to less than 1 gig. Any one have a solution? – user139734 Mar 12 '13 at 16:37
