Quick question about Networking with linux and booting...
I was wondering if there is anyway to boot Linux to init 3 off of a flash drive, load all network, smb, and nfs drivers, mount a network filesystem, and continue booting into init 5 off of the network??? I'm an intermediate Linux user, so help would be great... I'm trying to make a diskless set-to-box that does a partial boot off of the flash and turns over to the network for the rest (kde, etc.)

This is already handled by the linux filesystem heirarchy.
If you boot into runlevel 5 and mount various bits of the filesystem using NFS from another server, you can achieve what you need.
Take a look here:
You probably need to keep /etc /tmp /bin /sbin /var /boot & /lib local and mount /usr /home and /opt from the lan. Most of the application binaries are in /usr somewhere.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
