I want to know if the official 700MB installation images can be used to do a network installation. What would be the easiest way to do it?

The easiest way to do a network install would be to boot netboot.me or billix, both of which have Ubuntu network installers provided. However, both of those options download the image on the fly.

If you are looking to install from a local image over your network connection, follow these instructions for a local netinstall via using DHCP, TFTP, and PXE: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LocalNet
