There are many ways to do this.  You can use cf.preconf to bootstrap
cfengine just about any way you choose.  We do this during jumpstart on
Solaris.  The cfengine binary runs off an NFS mount on the jumpstart
server via finish script, runs cf.preconf which copies all the cfengine
files, then executes those files.  The copy could be done via NFS, but in
this case we use cfd on the jumpstart server.  One of those cfengine files
actually installs cfengine on the new system.
