There are probably some other networked options. For example root
on nbd has been tried here:
How about copying root into a ramdisk from an ftp/tftp/http server?
Someone in a thin-client environment might try something like that.
Also: root on encrypted loop. There are several basic encryption
options, including (I think) whose module you use. There are lots of
ways the key might be acquired: interactively from keyboard, floppy,
USB storage, smart card, and so on.
