power_time: Number of second between power cycles (to help save wear and tear
on the hardware). We recommend 60.
imageid: Default image to load (created in Step 6)
imageable: Set to 1 if a disk image can be created/restored on this node type.
delay_capacity: How many delay nodes this node can be. For example, nodes with
2 experimental interfaces can be 1 delay node, nodes with 4 experimental
interfaces can be 2 delay nodes, etc.
virtnode_capacity: Number of virtual nodes that can be hosted on a single
physical node of this type.
control_iface: Linux-style interface name for the control network (ie. 'eth0')
disktype: FreeBSD-style disk name for the primary hard drive.
Choices are 'ad' (IDE), 'sd' (SCSI), or 'ar' (IDE RAID).
delay_osid: Which OS should be run when this node is being a delay node.
Should usually be 'FBSD-STD'
pxe_boot_path: Path (including hostname) to the mini-kernel that should be
loaded by PXE. Ask Utah for this kernel. For example,
isvirtnode: Should be 0.
isremotenode: Should be 0.
