Debian can surely be installed via NFS, I do that frequently.

Actually, Debian tries to guess the path on the NFS server. If you
hide the Debian distribution files under many braches you
will, of course, have to tell it where you put it.

It does support FTP install and upgrade of the whole distribution or just
some packages. It may even tell you (I hear) which packages have new
versions by doing an FTP connection. I never tried this and I don't know
if the FTP-mode, or even the NFS is relevant to the End User. 

This depends on what the participants on the SEUL list understand by `The
End User' or the `Simple End User'. I still have no clue on this ;-).
